Stop my spam!

I have been receiving an enormous amout of spam in the last few months. Most of it vulgar and disgusting. I have spent hours sending the address to my "Add senders to blocked sender list" &/or "Add sender domain to blocked sender list". This is useless because the spam senders simply change their email address by changing a single letter or a number .

80% of all spam comes from one country domain.

I have even found the "Security Options" screen, clicked on 'International', clicked on "Blocked top-viewed Domain List" and clicked on the country designation.

Despite all of these attempts, I still get the same number of spam emails. What do I have to do to stop this junk!

Sending out unsubscribe messages was probably the worst thing you could have possibly done. Now they know that this is a valid email address and you can probably expect the amount of SPAM to increase. You would need to either purchase an Anti SPAM gateway device or software that intercepts it before it gets to your inbox. You could also change to an email account like Gmail that has a SPAM filtering service as part of the account.

You can't stop it. All you can do is try to minimize what gets though to your inbox. If you tell us what email client (or browser if web mail) you use and your mail provider somebody may have specific suggestions.
