    I'm not sure what I would have signed up to, but recently I'm getting LOTS of email in my Bulk folder (Like 25 emails a day) it's all advertisement for all different things, I tried blocking their emails, but everyone is different, it's all randomized email names, they are all just random letters/numbers so none of them are the same, And I use my Bulk folder (Because thats where some emails that I am waiting for go to )

    Anyone know how to fix this

    Outside of using a program like Mailwasher it is almost impossible to stop these even with a good spam blocker.

    If it fits your need you can establish a message rule in your mail program accepting email only from people in your address book.

    I've been there. Problem with the 'address book only' trick is that I won't get e-mails from someone I recently gave the e-mail address to and forgot to enter in the address book. To get around this, I openned another e-mail account and only give that address to the people I want to get in touch with me - anything else goes to the 'junk collector'. It's been working great for about six months now. Got my fingers crossed.

    BJ-Your are right I didn't mention that option. I had to do the same thing on my wife's email as her brother must have forwarded an email to somebody and the problems started. Luckly RR let's you have 5 active emails at a time.
