To unsubscribe


Unfortunately you cannot unsubscribe from spam.

A nasty spammer has got hold of your e-mail address and that's all there is.

There are two solutions.

One is to use some form of spam blocking software,

Another is to change your e-mail address and don't drop the new one around where people can see and abuse it.

Tip

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.

Aol block me from sending emails how can i be unblock?


AOL is VERY strict on their "SPAMMING" rules. If you ar sending out several emails all at once, AOL considers this spamming. I believe their rules say something about sending identical emails to more than 10 people is considered spam. If your emails are legitamate and not spam, then I would suggest either changing to a different mail service provider and sign up for a commercial account, or contact AOL directly and see if they will unblock you.

An e-mail was sent to every person on my yahoo mailing list for Viagra. The message looks like I sent it but I did not


Hello,

This is a common problem. Someone has hacked your email, and sent those messages.

You should probably change your password.

Hope this helps.

Your mail password may have been obtained by a phishing site or by you using the same password on unscrupulous websites. Change your password and it should fix the issue.

I think my Id might have been comprimised. I was cleaning my spam and saw emails from my own email to me and otheres with those viagra adds. What should I do? I have a regular Yahoo classic account.


You should first confirm that your ID's been comprimised. Then if it is indeed comprimised then contact yahoo and have that account shut down. But before you do that you should write down the names of those on your contacts list.

Name of Stephanie Carpenter in my spam mail


the mail you receive is most likely spam, if you post your email address on public places, just like you did here, a spamming program / bot that looks for such emails will pick it up and put it on a list of emails to send spam email to. over time you will probably get more and more spam email in different peoples names and so on, messages for viagra, drugs, etc completely useless spam email.
