    if you are using OE you can block them but they will still go into your deleted folder best thing to do is set up a hotmail account and give it out instead of your personal address

    I had a similar problem with that stupid opt-in network. I still get some from them.

    I have been using Mailwasher to bounce back those emails that come from them. It is faster than opening up my email then deleting them, plus I feel like I am giving a little something back to them. And who knows, if they see they are getting a lot of bounced mail from your address, they might actually stop sending you email.

    Been using Mailwasher for some time now and it is great. After you mark an email to bounce the next time it is sent to you it never even comes into your PC. It is deleted from the server.
    I have played with mass mail programs and most of the good ones will take an address off thier list if it is bounced back to them. Try it you'll like it.

    what i would like to be able to do is get to the source......customoffer.com.

    mailwasher allows me to bounce all the junk that i'm getting from clients of customoffer and not the source itself.

    is there anything else out there that gets me to the source????

    the problem is that customoffer doesn't really care about the bounce......they'll just keep on selling my e-m address until kingdom come.

    lilaco,

    This may sound dumb but how about getting back on the customoffer.com list and the use mailwasher to bounce there email.

    If they are the way it sounds and took you off there list and still selling your address for others to use.
    But if customoffer.com get bounce the maybe the list they give or sell to other will not have your address on it because they think it's dead.

    i'm not getting e-mail from customoffer. i'm getting e-mails from companies that they've sold my name to.

    i'm not able to mailwash customoffer and can only mailwash their clients which may get me off their list but doesn't stop customoffer from still selling my name to others.

    how do i get on to customoffer and get off the main list.

    That was my point. They think your address is good and sell it to others.
    If you get on there list again and bounce it back may you will get off the list that they sell.
