Hi, ive been getting spam emails from sites i've never signed up for. I get like 3 e-mails per time, and usally they send it every 10 minutes, then they wait a hr or 2, and then they do it again.
My Firewall/AntiVirus/Spam Assistant (If you herd of Cogeco Secruity Services, which is run by F-Secure) works, but when the spam is caught, it goes into the trash can, and I would like it just to remove it.
I have tried blocking the domain (*@mail.com) and that didn't stop it (I blocked it in Outlook Express and my Cogeco Secruity Services).
Please help me, ive been getting these emails for a month now, and its pissing me off.
Thanks for your help!
Personally, I don't know anything about making scripts or installing them (on programs). I do not know how to add "blocked" words either.
check to see if your antispam allows u to block by words in its configuration screen. If it does add them in. You can try using "mail rules" that comes with Outlook Express if you don't have an effective antispam program. You'll have to create quite a few though.
Eg: If mail from: SPAMMER, then delete of SERVER
Just look for it under the dropdown menu list. Under tools if i'm not mistaken. You should be able to create rules to delete mails with certain keywords in subject hearder etc. Have a go at it.
Unfortuantly, my spam handler only blocks address, no words.
There is a program I have been using for 2 years now call Mailwasher. It lets you blacklist senders and bounce back e-mails and such, and can be set up to do this with your account and when is is done it will start outlook with only the messages you want to receive.
For stopping spam, i quit Outlook for Thunderbird.
why not block those addresses that are spamming. also, u could use Norton Antispam. that's gud. u could also use SPAM assasin. that's very useful in combatting spam. i think that there are some web based services that automatically list some messages that can be spam. then u can moderate them. just like Akismet in wordpress.
The best way to stop spam is to look at the mails on your ISP serverver.
Mailwaser will do this before you download any to your PC.
It cat display part of each mail and the sender e-mail address.
If you don't want any, delete them from server then download only the ones you want.
This will also protect you from dubious attachments or scripts that could mess up your PC.
