Win ME.
Hi everyone,
I'm sick of getting porn emails. I've blocked all the ones that come through and they go straight into the deleted items but I dont even want them there. Is there away that I can stop them coming to me at all??? I'm using outlook express.
Many thanks. T

MailWasher highly recommended. If you need a free version of MailWasher that'll handle more than one email account of different ISPs, then get this click here. G

I know this isnt the answer but you could change your email address, if you want to go down that route I have a gmail invite if you need it. Just email me using the yellow envelope, giving you first and surname and email address.

Snap. Regardless of what you install to stop/rid your PC of them, someone will always find a way to get round it.

Quite a few links on the above responses but why should we have to load our PCs up with so many "blocker" programmes.

Who are these morons?

Why set Outlook Express to delete the e-mails from the server, instead of blocking them. click here

Should of read "Why not set"

Try changing your email address and putting a few numbers in it.

I keep my main one as ISP insist I can't change it. However it is always full of spam etc no matter how I try to block it. I never check it now.

My other addresses which include numbers such as PCA1rhubarb@..... have never received spam.

Hope this helps

As jagx400 said, change your email address and if necessary your isp. I was with bt for years and had to put with this crap, changed my isp when I went broadband and of course my email addresses and in two years have not received any spam of any kind. Also do not give out your email address to anyone or any website unless you really need to.

Another tip is to NEVER respond to any unsolicited email. The spammers will then know your email address is 'active' & will spam you even more!

If you use MailWasher, don't use the 'Bounce' option. This rarely works as the true origin of most of these messages is concealed. Also, the spammers often use real email IDs, so you may be bouncing messages back to innocent people!

As the others have said, don't provide your email address(es) to any site you're not sure about. If you have no other option but provide an email address & you're not too sure, use a free disposeable one like SpamGourmet click here (for similar click here), or even consider a service like RiskFreeMail click here.
