    Hi everyone. Under my mail controls I have people emailing who are only in my address book. The problem is I keep getting email from people who are not in the book. I made sure that I went to mail controls and saved the changes, but I still am getting an email. Could this be a security problem?? Any help would be great.

    Are you making all these changes under the Primary screen name?

    Double check which names/domains you are allowing and blocking

    Okay. I made sure that it was on the primary screen name. I also made sure that I have everyone blocked besides the people that I know. But then today I got two emails like this (I dont open them. I just delete and report spam) :

    Very strange that you still receive junk though...

    I'm guessing you went to 'customize mail' and set up in 'allow e-mail from the listed AOL members, e-mail addresses, and domains. block e-mail from all others' ?
