How to keep a check on Email Spam?


Step 1: Set up "filters" in your Gmail account to automatically delete junk mail from specific senders. While spammers tend to change their email addresses frequently, you will sometimes get repeated spam messages from the same sender. Go into your "Settings," click "Filters," and set up a filter that automatically deletes all incoming emails from the sender.

Step 2: If you are getting junk mail from the same company, but the return address keeps changing, create a filter to delete the emails by detecting certain words. For example, maybe the company is called Global Moneymaking Enterprises. Create a filter that catches all emails that contain those three words and set it to delete them automatically.

Step 3: Rather than deleting junk emails that make it into your Gmail inbox, select them and click the "Report Spam" button. This will move the message into your spam folder, but it will also give Google information to help it improve its spam filter.

Step 4: Set up a special Gmail address that you use for making purchases, signing up for newsletters, and doing other activities that require you to give out your email address. Sometimes companies will opt you into promotional offers or sell your email address to spammers. Block this mail from coming to your main Gmail account by protecting that address and only giving out your special account address.

Step 5: If you notice a lot of junk emails in your spam folder that contain certain words, set up a filter to screen out emails with those words. Terms such as Viagra are common, but spammers often change them around to defeat spam filters, However, many of these changes are used frequently. For example, many spammers use the same Vi@gara misspelling. When you notice this, block those terms and you won't even get their messages in your Gmail spam folder.

Where is the spam folder on the computer


Spam folder is not specific to the computer, but it refers to a folder when you log into your email address.
Emails that are presumed to junk emails, would be received into the spam folder, instead of the inbox.
Incase you have an email that is from a known source, in your spam folder, then you will have to add that email address into your contacts, so that the next time an email is received from the same email address, it will come into your inbox, instead of coming into the spam folder.

How do I keep e-mails from being sent to spam or bouncing back to the sender and not going into spam at all? The 'not spam' key does not fix the problem with future e-mails.


i'm guessing your're using a "throw-away email service" like hotmail, yahoo, gmail ... email your email provider about the issue because it could be them. the other option is to use a different provider.

I keep getting around 150 spams per day. Other than changing my email address is there anything i can do to get back at these people so they stop annoying me


Almost all email programs have some sort of spam filter/address blocker that you can configure. I'd check into that first. If yours does not, you can go to www.cnet.com and do a search on spam blocker. There are free ones you can try/download.

I am receivng spam in my email box even though it has been set to not allow spam, by myself as well as a tech suport person last week. I continue to get loads of spam!!


If you're using Outlook, a simple thing to do is to right-click a particular email, and click either 'Junk email' and add the sender to black list, or click 'Create rule', and add some common subject lines you get, and send all matching messages to go to the deleted folder.
