Can I stop these e-mails?

Postby [RS] Hughie » Sun Jan 08, 2012 11:29 am

I get these damn annoying e-mails offering me viagra and similar shit but since just before XMas it's becoming more frequent.

How do these goons get your e-mail ? I don't give out my e-mail address willy-nilly,only to 'legitimate' sites.I changed my e-mail address some time ago and it stopped but eventually they seem to 'find' me again.

I have never replied to any of them although I would like to. (NOT for their services but to tell them what a bunch of c***s they are) :evil:

What email provider do you use? Do you use webmail or pop3 to a client on your computer?

I still use my old Pipex e-mail address.
I use Thunderbird/pop3 but I can also get them via webmail.

Get a Gmail account and never look back mate, you can still access it via pop3 and the spam blocker is the best I've ever seen!

ISP emails are a waste of time. Get a Gmail or Hotmail/Live account and say goodbye to junk mail.

I have 2 Hotmail accounts one main account and another that i use for signing up to forums and some online shopping shit and I never get any junk on either apart from the spam from shopping sites which you can easily stop.
