Question about Microsoft Office Outlook 2007: Windows

Spam from my own domain and e-mail address

My spam filters work pretty well except one source sends spam from my own e-mail address -- it varies the subject line (e.g., "order acknowledgement") -- and I cannot seem to stop it. I get maybe 5-10 per day from this one source.

The message is always an image of the leading Viagra-type drugs.

So frustrating!

    This is bad advice. Of course it is viral. The last thing one would want to do is click throught to the site and try to "unsubscribe!"

Look closely at the e-mails. somewhere on there (Probably in very small print and towards the bottom) there should be a link you can visit to stop the e-mails. they are required by law to stop if you request them to.

if there are no links on any of them, it is possible that this Viral.

    try scanning the links first, if you have a decent antivirus program. the point is to find out where they are originating. else scan your system for viruses. if this was obviously viral that should always be the first step

A person that I work for is upset because she thinks I dont do enough and she said alot of hurtful things trying to make amends


Hi,
If your email account full unwanted email and you are not stop this email. And facing more problem, no issue i share supported link please visit and follow instruction.

First, try not to open any of them, that only makes them send more and more to you.
Check mark them and click on 'Spam,' this should stop those addresses from being delivered to your inbox.
Use your spam guard and block address.
Look for the 'Options' link at upper right corner of mail screen and click on it
Options /mail options
Click on 'spam' in the list on the left.
Make sure spam guard is on, by checking in the little box.
Then in 'Blocked Email Addresses,' enter the E-mail address you wish blocked, in the box after 'Add a blocked address' and click on the 'add' button, then click on save changes at top left of screen.
You will never get mail from that address again.
This should help you to control your spam.
Other tips:
Do not ever open E-mail from people you do not know; and unless you are absolutely sure who it is from then treat them as spam.
Opening spam alerts the sender that your address is a valid one and they send you loads and loads more of it to you.
Never, ever give out your account information or other personal information to anyone.
If you are on a site and you absolutely have to sign up for something, check the entire page to make sure you uncheck any lines wanting to send you any other info, notices, catalogs, ads, and the like.
Added detail:
Yes, spammers change one item in their addresses a lot, so you might try blocking the entire domain, by putting in
*@ abcd.com
for instance: *@seeyou.com
Or, if they change the domain, instead of the company name you can block the name by putting in Imatheft_inc@*

Thanks.

Get rid of spam


Unsolicited junk e-mail, or spam, is an unwelcome and often offensive byproduct of the Internet's success. Although there's no guarantee you can avoid all spam, there are ways to avoid looking at most of it.Instructions

  1. Basic prevention
    • 1 If you're already getting spam messages, check with your Internet service provider to see whether it has a spam-prevention option that scans your incoming e-mail for known spammers.
    • 2 If you're lucky enough not to be getting spam now, then sign up for a second (free) e-mail address from a service such as Yahoo or Hotmail. Use this address exclusively for e-commerce, mailing-list subscriptions and bulletin-board postings of any kind. Reserve your main e-mail address for private e-mail to and from friends.
    Rule filtering
    • 1 Create an e-mail folder called Suspected Spam.
    • 2 Use the filtering feature in your e-mail program to create rules that redirect spam messages to your Suspected Spam folder. Most spam is not addressed to its recipient by name.
    • 3 Define a rule for incoming mail that says, "If my name appears in the To: or cc: field, then move this message to the Inbox." The procedure for defining rules varies among e-mail programs, so you should consult your program's Help feature to learn exactly how this works.
    • 4 Define individual rules to catch e-mail that isn't addressed to you personally but that you nevertheless want to receive, such as messages from lists you've subscribed to. Have these rules redirect the relevant messages to the Inbox or to special folders that you have created for mail from those sources--for instance: "If the Sender field includes 'MyList,' then send this message to the MyList folder."
    • 5 Define a final rule that sends all other e-mail that hasn't already been redirected by one of your other rules to the Suspected Spam box. For instance, a rule that says, "If the Sender field isn't 'XYXYXYXYY,' then move this message to the Suspected Spam folder" would work as a catchall.

  • Never reply to a spam message, even to request that your name be removed from the list. That just tells the spammers that your address is valid.

Hi. You haven't said what you are using for email. Do you use a webmail account like yahoo mail or do you get it through your internet service provider? Are you using an email program like Outlook? Can you send mail out?

The most common reason why email stops coming through is from some spam filter. The spam filter can be from you ISP (internet provider) or on your own machine. Usually spam filters will allow some mail through from a address, ie like a friend's address one time but not the next IF there was something in the subject line or body that it thinks is spam. Also sometimes they will block an entire domain if that domain (the part after the @ ie @spamsend.com ) is a suspected domain used by spammers. Check in your SPAM folder also check in your email's TRASH folder to make sure they haven't ended up there.

Another reason can be that a FIREWALL is blocking the port used for recieving mail has gotten blocked. That can be in your machine setup or in the router if you're using one.

And one last thing - your anti-virus software can be blocking it.

It is common when ISP are updating thier spyware, malware and spam filters certain emails or domains get flagged. There was a lot of Spam that was flowing from .ru domains at one point. It doesn't mean all is bad it's just the filter system as it follows the path of the problem. Because your email address is generic @mail.ru it can be a great use for hiding spam. Its more than likely it will clear once the source of the problem is tracked down. Last point can also be when a mail server is getting work done. It is shut down as upgrades are down. This produces bounced mail as well. Good Luck

I send emails and they are not received at one particular recipient, although perfectly OK at others


Since everyone gets the mail except one person, the problem lies with that person. Either their spam filter is filtering out your mail or you have the wrong address for them.
The spam filter can be at the ISP level or on their computer.

I WANT TO DELETED ALL SPAM THET I GET EVERYDAY


  • Complain to your ISP. If you receive an unrequested and unwanted message, forward it to your ISP. (Your ISP, such as BT Internet or a local operation, provides you Internet access and service.) Ask your access provider to block incoming mail from that address and to complain on your behalf.
  • Use an online blocking service. Check to see what filtering options your access provider or email service may provide to subscribers. America Online, for example, has a preferred mail option (keyword = preferred mail) to protect a user’s account from receiving email from known junk emailers. iVillage also has some filtering services in its email programme. Secondly, look at free online services such as Bright Light Technologies, with screens mail before your read it and promises to eliminate up to 90 per cent of spam without eradicating wanted email.

  • Install a filtering programme. There are dozens on the market. Two that we like are Spambuster, a shareware programme, or PC Spamkiller which has one of the highest ratings on the market.

  • Forward offenders’ names to websites committed to stamping out spam. Two examples are, the Blacklist of Internet Advertisers and SpamCop. Both are US sites, but then the States has a bigger problem with spam than the UK and Europe.
  • Complain to your ISP. To do this first you’ll need to make sure you have the right domain name (whatever follows the @ sign, such as @ivillage.com), since spammers often disguise their domains so nice people like you can’t find them to complain.
  • Visit the SpamCop site’s FAQ for tips on how to find domain names. Once you have the right domain, send complaints to the following standardised address: abuse@ (their domain); postmaster@ (their domain); root@ (their domain); admin@ (their domain).

    Verizon customers cannot receive my yahoo emails


    What are you using to send your mail? Gmail? Comcast? Your own domain name?

    If Gmail or Comcast (or any other big provider) got blocked for Spam, you should notify them.

    If you're hosting your own domain/e-mail, you should contact your webhost, and they'll handle it for you.

    Please check your spam/junk email filters in case that domain was blocked accidentally. (Note: in some email clients, you can block entire domains as well as individual addresses).

    All the messages I send end up in peoples junk folders


    This issue is an issue with Yahoo! email spam settings and not necessarily your domain email.

    To resolve this issue, your recipients using Yahoo! email addresses need to change their spam settings, by going to the Spam folder and clicking [ Edit Settings ] in the gray box. In these options and settings, the recipients can modify what is considered spam and what is not considered spam.

    Also, it is advised that the recipients check their Spam folders frequently, since your emails may still end up in that folder. If there is new mail in the Spam folder, there will be a number next to the folder name (In this case, Spam) and it will be in bold face text.
