Lately I have been receiving a lot of spam emails - both office and my personal Yahoo accounts. It is really irritating and annoying, imagine every morning you have to spend some time 'sweeping' them away before you can start your work. And it is even worse when you are away for a day or two and go back to find there are a chunk of them waiting for you.

I have tried every ways of blocking them; I called up our IT Support staff to report the spams, and in my own Yahoo email I will click on 'Spam' whenever I see one and the system will automatically file it under Bulk so I don't even bother to check any mails which are listed under this folder. But still, I receive spams every now and then. It is like a vicious cycle, and I am beginning to get tired of all this stuff. So, I am wondering if you have the same problem like this. Usually how many do you receive a day? Does it bother you? And what will you do about it? I would love to hear from you.

  1. My spam count seems to be going up in recent weeks, including at work where the filter is so strict that my husband's e-mails never get through. A lot of it goes straight into my spam folder and so it's easy to hit the delete key without having to bother with any of it. I just have to make sure no "good" mail gets thrown in there my mistake. Spam is a big headache.

    They are such a nuisance, aren't they?! Wow, your filters sound terrific, but I wouldn't want my "good" mails to end up in the garbage bin either. Hopefully they can be solved!!!

    I recently got so frustrated with my home e-mail I got a gmail account. So far I have very little spam.

    Melody - I use Yahoo too and get spams all the time. Most spam get sent to junk mail when yahoo reconized it. But sometime even important e-mails get sent to junk mail and I had to sent it back to my inbox....

    I do have Gmail and you don't get lot of spam at all! At one time I only see 1 or 2 spams and that it. And it was only happen once. The Gmail really work well and keep out the spams from coming in your inbox.

    Believe it or not, I think google and Gmail work together. You're using the google account to sign in your blog. If you have google then you can get Gmail but I think to get one, you have to sign up from your cell phone. OR your friend can invite you to get Gmail.

    Hey Julia, yes I do encounter some emails going to the junk mailbox, but it is rare.

    Seriously I haven't think of signing up gmail and I have to reconsider it since a few of you said some good things about it. :)
