     How To Get Rid of Unwanted Emails...Junk Mail, Spam
     
    There are 3 MAIN parts to this....It works, but give it a little time,
    like a few days or a week...
     
     1.  Sending the whole thing onto to the Government...
    do not delete any information....SPAM TO FORWARD....
    send completely as is so they can track it down...
    They have prosecuted  people for this...
    One guy a few months ago in Michigan!!  spam@uce.gov
     
     2.Then go on and  "block the sender" from sending
    anything to you again..
     
     3.  Then go and " delete"  the message...
    ...........................................................................................................
     
     
    How do I get rid of unwanted emails. (like Viagra, prescriptions, etc.)
     
     
    STEP 1..Spam To Forward .. spam@uce.gov
     

    If it is Vi-gra etc..junk email..
    mortgage offers I do not want..

    I send the Spam onto the
    Government before I block it..

    In your address book: add this address to
    send unwanted spam/emails
     onto the government   spam@uce.gov
     
    I forward it to the gov. and then go
     and block it from future use and then delete the email
    completely.

    Hope you understand this....


     ..................................................................................................
     STEP 2
    This should help:

    On the email YOU DO NOT WANT...
    Hi lite  the email

    Go to MESSAGES on top..click messages
    Go down to BLOCK SENDER

    It will ask you if you want to block sender..
    Click yes...(It will go into your
    block sender list and you will not get another one from them)
     
    STEP 3


    Then go up and delete THAT email


    STEP 4
    If you ever want to unblock the sender
    (Like you blocked someone you did not mean to block)
    ...(a mistake on your part...it does happen!)

    Go to TOOLS above
    Go down to MESSAGE RULES and
     follow the arrow to the right..
    Click on BLOCK SENDER LIST...

    This will show all the ones you have block
     today and backwards...
    Find the one you want to
     UNBLOCK ...Hi lite and hit remove.
    You will then get emails again from that person.

    Cuts out junk emails great...try it...

    I already follow these steps, but it is still very frustrating and tiring. I just had to do that 50 times! I want to be able to block them from ever getting into my outlook express mailbox!

    Yes, it might be time consuming at first...but once you do it...I can go a lot of months before I ever get another one...It goes in spurts....and IF I do get one...It is only 1 on a day...

     

    It does pay off, just have to have patience.

    It does take patience Zakons but I pays off, I agree. I get very little spam anymore.

    It's kinda like the "Do Not Call" register. Takes a little time to do it, but so worth it.

    I also delete "unread"  certain items and many have stopped coming eventually.

    Zakons, I've been doing this forever. I've never had it like this....50-80 spam e-mails a day. I hardly ever buy stuff on-line and I don't e-mail with very many people, so I just don't know.

    By next week, it should be way down or elimated....One time a year ago,,,,I went to my "block senders" list...and unblocked them all....I figured it has been a few years....BIG Mistake!!   I was bombarded with unwanted emails right away...I mean a huge number each day....I went and did it again...blocked the senders....and it stopped completely...

    Patience...is all I can say....Walk away awhile...you don't have to do it all at once.....

    Zakons, thanks for these very helpful instructions!  I get a lot of spam, and I'll tell you and others how it started, in hopes that it'll not happen to someone else.  One day, I got an e-mail that said something like "Win a free $500 gift card from -------- (a chain store I shop at)".  I clicked on a supposed "survey" so it would enter me in the supposed contest.  It's obvious that this wasn't a legitimate contest sponsored by the store.  Instead, it was just a way for some unscrupulous company to get e-mail addresses from people, which they sell to a million other companies, and it immediately multiplied into tons of spam.
