Does anyone know how I can stop all these dirty little e-mails being sent to my Outlook Express account? While I was away at University, my Mum went into it, and discovered loads of really bizarre and twisted porn e-mails! And worst of all, she thought I'd signed up for them! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br><br><br>
So... is there any way I can somehow block all these addresses, or send them to a bulk mail folder, or <i>something</i>?<br><br><br><br>
Many thanks!

Do <span style="text-decoration:underline;">not</span> unsubscribe from them. It only confirms that you still have a valid e-mail account. Download Mailwasher from <a href="http://www.mailwasher.net" target="_blank">http://www.mailwasher.net</a> and you can bounce e-mails right off the server without downloading them. The sender gets a message that their e-mail bounced.

I concur, methinks there is a bit of hope-inducing false advertising in the title of this thread.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Like if it email that you have no idea why you are getting it (like the increase your youknowwhat, that I get), don't unsubscribe. But if it is a legitimate newsletter that you signed up for or accidentally signed up for when registering for something, then it's usually safe to unsubscribe.

Ohh i know. Once I was on yahoo chat and someone had sent me a private message with a link and i clicked it. It was porn and i was trying to get rid of it but the more times i clicked the X to exit it, the more windows that popped up!! I had to restart my whole computer. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"> Edited to add it was the last time I ever clicked any links someone sent me again.!

haha.. sounds like most of us were dissappointed, lol<br><br><br><br>
LC: If you have that problem again with new browsers opening up... try using control+alt+delete for the task manager to appear, then click on the browser in the task manager and keep hitting end task. That seems to work for me. I bet it would be REALLY funny if a computer would record people's faces when all those windows start opening up...

And be careful with your "real" email adress.<br><br><br><br>
I've got one at work (the real one)<br><br>
one for totally non-workrelated mails.<br><br>
two or three (or four) for sites that need a mailadress when I don't want to give my real adress.

Thanks for that link Michael. I'm going to download that mailwasher. I get about 100 junk e-mails a day and would love to get rid of them!

I used to get loads of those porn ads, refinancing scemes, you name it. What I did, after awhile of trying to unsubscribe from their mailing lists, was change my primary email address. I have a vacation response set up on the old one, so those friends who for whatever reason didn't hear about my email address change will know that's what's up, and I do want to hear from them.<br><br><br><br>
It'll take the spammers awhile to catch up with me, so for now, my primary email is spam-free.
