Stop E-Mail Spam

(Posted 5 months ago) Doggie

Recently I'm being hit with massive amounts of spam getting through Outlooks spam filters.
Most of it is from whatever that is and whether I choose to block it categorize it as junk or phishing it keeps coming
Does anyone know of a legit and possibly free ant - email spam program? Right now I'm only using Windows Defender so maybe an anti virus that
is also effective with e-mail spam? Thanks for any advice

Hey Doggie, perhaps you can at least set some rules to delete all spam from that email/domain. As for antivirus/spyware too, I use MSE as it seems it's much preferred and better than Defender.

I've tried setting every rule possible including checking the option to only allow mail from those on my safe list.
Nothing works I keep getting bombarded.

I see. Do you use it for important stuff and connected to other accounts?

If it's not that hard to transition then I think it's an easy bet to just create a new one and notify about your switch to all of your trusted contacts.

This should save you effort and frustrations in the long run.

Same e-mail account I've had since dial up days. That's why it's instead of so it's associated with quite a few things
Right now I'm making a rule for every spam account to send it to junk but it used to be all I had to do was right click it and mark it.
I guess if it isn't contained I can create a new account and change it everywhere I can think of that I might need mail from.
