    For a while we have been getting really bad spam in our gmail, is there something I can do to stop that garbage? We are using windows 10 if that is any help.

    Google (G-Mail is usually pretty good at spam. Using the Report Spam should help:

    But there is no real quick fix. Be vigilant in reporting.

    I appreciate your help, I guess I was hoping for a magic bullet. I will report it every time they send that junk. Thanks again.

    Gmail has the best spam filters. Are you sure you or someone who uses the account didn't sign up for something?

    Gmail has the best spam filters. You can find more detailed information about it on Techgara. The real problem only happens to users of Outlook Mail. Can't stop spam on that platform.
