Email issues - spam sent to my email from my email

Question: Email issues - spam sent to my email from my email

Hi, I'm having a problem with my email. I was clearing out my folders and notice an email in my junk file sent from myself to myself. Same email to and from. It was flagged as important and having read it, it is clearly spam. I checked Windows Live Mail and found a couple more of these emails that have been sent from me, to me.

I tried searching for this online but apart from some answers about email 'worms' I don't know what's caused it, if my account is at risk/should be deleted, or how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated.

I got up the message source in Windows Live Mail and the top of this (before the HTML for the email) is as follows, I have blocked out my email address with [email protected] for privacy:

I have a few email addresses and one that I use paringly ie keep it for certain items, but today in quick sucession I got 2 spam emails on it, one from British Airways and the other from FB.
I then ran malwarebytes and quite a few PUP's were found BUT and this is the big but, a lot of the items found appeared to be useful and I then realised I do not have a clue what I should or should not delete!!
My queries are, how can my email get out and is there any guide that will tell me what to delete and not delete in malawarebytes?
I use win xp pro, norton security, spyblaster, ccleaner and on occasions try a few otehrs like malaware, adaware and so on.

Answer:got a spam email from British Airways and Facebook today to my guarded email-ran malwarebytes but??

"how can my email get out"
it will be in the address book of anyone that you have sent an email to and if their pc or webmail is compromised the spammers will have all the addresses from their address books.
As for PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) only you will know if you use the program(s) in question and whether you want them or not.
Or perhaps you could list them and ask for opinions?

Hi guys,
 
'Boopme' had me run MiniToolBox and he wrote that he found "errors and other issues" and he bumped me to this thread.
 
Norton now seems to be removed and the restart was successful w/ out a restore.
 
This is what I wrote in under the from "Am I infected?" thread;
 
 

Been having problems with my laptop running Vista Home premium svc pack2.
One day, a month ago, Norton was not updating properly. Upon the next boot-up windows would not start and I was forced to restart in safe mode with a system restore. This was successful but Norton Security Suite was still not updating properly.
Since then, on a few occasions, I have attempted to uninstall Norton without success thru the program uninstaler. Norton is unresponsive. I even got the Norton rep. to do a remote deletion of all registry files of Norton. But they all returned after the reboot of my PC because windows would not open and I had to start-up thru system restore.
Since then my yahoo email been hacked and spam sent to the contacts of my address book.
I know I got something but I don't know what.. Can anyone take a stab at what I might need to do?
Thanks,
Brian

Running Win 7 .  Opened spam email by mistake and email account hacked. Acct locked by server after 1600 email sent. Account has been recovered.  I ran full scan with Microsoft Essentials and Malwarbytes and both clean.  Then I did a full scan with Kapersky and it showed 1 malware  of Trojan.JS.Agent.cfl located on my external harddrive in my backup files location and possibly 2 other locations on the report.  I have pdf ofKapersky report if want to see.
I also ran AVG 2015 and it was clean.
 
Not sure if I should just delete the backup files from my external hard drive.

Hello! I'm a (very) long time lurker of this site but recently decided to join. I've had my Windows 8.1 Toshiba Satellite laptop for a bit over a month. About 2 weeks into ownership I started receiving spam emails in my msn account, the one I use to sign into the laptop. These mails are sometimes from me, although I have checked my sent mail and there isn't anything there I haven't personally sent. I signed into a different email account and that one was spammed too, until I signed out.
 
I access the internet from my phone and my desktop pc (Windows 7). I wasn't sure where the issue was coming from so I turned off the desktop but the problem persisted. I did a system restore on the I ran AntiMalwarebytes, CCleaner, and my antivirus programs which all came back clean, but the problem is still here.
 
I've factory restored three times, completely reformatted the drive twice and I still have the problem. I installed Windows 10 Preview but I didn't receive any spam for the hours I had it running. I reinstalled my OEM version of 8.1 and within 2 hours the spam emails started. The last time, I hadn't even installed my firewall and antivirus program when the spam email started. I also noticed that my OneDrive says the last time the files were synced was in 1969.
 
Having the laptop in airplane mode or shut off is the only way I don't receive spam.

Over the last few days I have been receiving a lot of "failure notice" and "undeliverable email" to my email address. It seems that my email address has been forged and spam/unsolicitated emails are being sent using my email address.I am worried that this willl cause genuine emails not to pass through other people's servers as my domain name would be blacklisted.Is there any practical solution to this?

Answer:spam/spoofed email using my email/domain name

fraid not as it would seem that someone with your e mail address in their address book has become infected and is mailing out as everyone in that book, but because your mail is genuine the 'bounce' comes back to you.johnny

I think I have asked this before. I am getting so much spam email im sick of deleting it all! These fat heads who send it to me I wish they would stop.

Some of the emails say "Your date has been approved with Jenn" Then will say my husband is away for a week so if the first date goes well we will try another.

Come talk to jean and see her body at bla bla website.

I get so many others too. Partsolver and towel direct?? I now have between my two computers almost 200 unread of spam emails and some thats not spam. It takes forver to go through and delete them all.

Ive been told not to hit unsubscribe but sometimes it helps. They say then they know your email is valid. Well they must or they would cease to email me so whats it going to matter to unsubscribe?

Ive even tried to "bounce to sender" but nothing works! Is there any way to block emails from these people? Or not allow them on my server? A auto bounce before they even come on my pc?

Maybe I should just ask my ISP I dont know. I thought id ask one last time.

Answer:I get lots of spam email to my email address

There are usually two places where SPAM filtres can be effective. The most obvious is at your ISP's Mailbox; because how ISPs handle the spam filter vary, I can give no explicit instructions, although their on-line help section generally will provide those.
The second place is at your Email Client on your computer. FF/Mozilla both include teachable Spam filters that you can use to segregate legitimate mail from the gunk.

The best place to stop SPAM is to be extremely careful about your Email Address. It would be a wise step to have one Email Address for friends, family, and trusted people, and a "throwaway" Email address (s) for on-line registrations, Ebay, or other public places. Once these addresses become, as they will, clogged with SPAM, you can simply delete them and create new addresses, beginning the process over again.

Regards,
John

I have a 2007 Gateway Laptop with Microsoft Vista on it. I have a personal email account with Hotmail.com

This morning when I checked my email, there was several emails indicating a delivery failure. However an email advertising viagra from a canadian drugstore was sent using my account to several people on my contact list. I checked with them and they definitely got that email.

So I think I have some kind of virus or malware that is using my email account to send spam email to people on my contact list.

Can anybody help me with rooting this out?

Thank you.

John

My email client, desktop program PostBox (for Win) has been slowed since I installed BD TS2016 (I'm quite sure this is the reason as it was very fast before, and slowed immediately after...)

I also run WebRoot AV (which does not scan email as per their documentation) and HitmanAlertPro (which could also be affecting my email client, but I uninstalled it to test this somewhat small chance given its just an anti-exploit, and it doesn't seem to have affected it, the client is still slow).

1. I would LIKE BD to scan my email as of course having AV w/o scanning email could in many ways be pointless given email can be a deadly vector for heavy malware.

2. But I don't want my client to be slow. It's not horrible, and I suppose I could tolerate it (basically deleting messages, loading new messages, and the program responsiveness overall, is a bit sluggish compared with its normal instantaneous response)

3. Is there a way to configure email scanning differently? Or should the program NOT be slowing my client noticeably in general, and is this behavior indicative of something being wrong?

I'm sure BD users will be able to comment on whether it slows their email or not given they use a desktop client like Outlook, Postbox, Thunderbird, etc.

Thanks!
 

Answer:BitDefender Email Scanning Mechanism? Performance Issues w/ email Client

In the past I used BD TS exclusively with OutLook as my e-mail client and had no such issues, have you tried, or open to try switching clients to see if it's something about Postbox that BD TS disagrees with ?

I have a situation where someone has 2 email addresses. One of them is now redundant and I have deleted it from the People section. However, when I am set to make a new email to that person and type the first letter of their name, in the pop up window (that you can click on) their old email address still appears.
How do I delete this from that list? Can find no way to do so.

Answer:Outlook Email - Deleting Wrong Email Entry when starting new email

In new email, start typing the address you want to remove. When you have enough characters for auto complete to show it (sometimes one letter is enough), use DOWN ARROW key on keyboard to select the address in question and press DEL key.

That's it.

I have a new ASUS notebook and it uses Windows 8. On my home pc I have Windows Vista and was able to set up multiply email accounts in Window Live Mail. (my charter, my hubby charter, 2 school google accounts and yahoo)
I was able to read mail coming thru our main email acct (my charter), if an email came thru that needed to go to my hubbys account or another account I was able to drop and drag it to the other account listed on the screen.

I have most of my emails set up on my new ASUS notebook. Is there any way to drop and drag emails from one account to another? I can drag the email and hover over the new email account, but it does not drag it.

Thanks for any help. I am new to the notebook thing and windows 8.

Answer:Move email from one email accout to another email account

If you are using Live Mail on both Windows 7 and Windows 8, use the instructions in this video - Windows 8 Tips: Moving Live Mail From Windows 7 - YouTube

This technique works WAY better than exporting and reimporting them.

Hello, I always use web-based email via the browser at home. I do not use an email client(well in the office we have Outlook). I'd like to use Thunderbird at home with a Gmail account that can be used by the kids. Now I am using Avira IS 2012 and would like to make it scan emails through it's mailguard component. I have seen Thunderbird work with Avast IS on my brother's pc but I see that for it to scan all emails the SSL/TSL should be deactivated. I was asking the tech guys at the office about email clients, digital certificates etc and they only remarked "google it"...wow... So I came here....Now my questiosn are: a. Is it safe to disable SSL/TSL in an email client? In the office we have that(with Norton Enterprise) and I see an indicator at the bottom of the email message that it was scanned by Norton. b. Can there be an application that can allow me to have SSL/TSL at the same time have Avira scan my emails...? I searched google and found out that in Avira it also has to be disabled to let it scan all emails. c. SSL/TSL is encryption right..? Does not using encryption in email okay..? I mean at home. In the office it's important but at home...opinions please..d. What ports for POP3 IMAP SMTP should I allow Thunderbird to use In the firewall( I use Comodo). If Thunderbird wants connections via other ports other than the default ones...should I allow it or not..?e. Can an email client be run inside a sandbox? Is it sane enough or crazy..? Just... Read more

Answer:Thunderbrid email client, Comodo Email Certificates, Avira IS 2012 questions

I would highly recommend that you keep TLS/SSL enabled this makes sure that your password and user credentials are not sent in the clear.

if the AV needs to have this disabled then its not a good AV..

The ports are on the setup page for Gmail: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Using_Gmail_with_Thunderbird_and_Mozilla_Suite

Digital Certs are expensive to create and use, and only vital for businesses and not home users.

I have had to reinstall pc due to it going at a crawl!!

After installing Outlook 2002, I can not get Outlook to auto fill the email address field when I start to type an email address in it.

The address book is there and in tacked after copying the outlook.pst file back to its original location after install.

How do I get Outlook to autofill?

Also when I click the 'TO' button in the new email window, it says that there is no address book!
but when I click the address book icon in the main Outlook window there are email address there?!

Any ideas how I can get this to work correctly again.

Answer:reinstalled pc, now create email in Outlook 2002 does not auto fill email address like before

When you did the re-install, did you erase/format the hard drive before the re-install? If you did and did not save the Outlook auto fill file, then the all the auto fills you had are gone. Did you import the pst file into outlook?

It has been doing this for awhile but lately it has been beyond ridiculous. I normally leave my email minimized in my task bar and maximize it when I get an email. Is this is known issue?

I can look on my harddrive and find the same email text file easily enough on my harddrive, and open that text file using notepad.

But I cannot find where the attachment(s) is stored on the harddrive? I've looked everywhere.

The reason is that I want to write a program that will archive windows live emails - and their attachments.

I didn't notice this before today. I'm running the 64 bit version of Windows 10 Pro, fully up to date, as well as the latest version of Windows Live Mail. I have a bunch of storage folders that I've created for email, so my actual inboxes are pretty much always empty as any mail I want to keep gets put into a storage folder.

When I do a search inside the program, all it's searching are the email subjects, not the actual contents of the messages.

Any idea how to fix this? I know this was an issue in the 64 bit version of Windows 7, as seen here.....

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/969165

.....but I'd have thought this would have been fixed by now! Is that fix still valid for Windows 10, or is there another solution? I really don't want to have to switch to another email client if I can help it.

Thanks!

Answer:Windows Live Mail only searching email subjects, not email contents

I have been having the same trouble, which was just noticed...

When trying to email to a specific internal email account, my email leaves my system and
does not arrive at the destination account. The destination account also happens to be the "administrator" and the email does get to the administrator email account. Any ideas?
 

Answer:Outlook 2000 Email problem to specific internal email address

Will: No offense, but your post sounds like you're saying you're sending it from one account to another, but it's not being received at the other account, which is the administrator---but the administrator receives it?

Could you please re-state your question?

I use T-Bird (v 31.7.0) On 2 occasions now, I have sent emails, with Attachments, to a friend in the UK, who is running HOTMAIL.On each occasion the Attachment is OK, but the message I sent with ti increases it?s Font size, line by line, until it is unreadable. Two 3 or 4 characters per line??and sections of the email are repeated. 4 or 5 lines, then back to the top.They are blaming me for a Virus?..but I am thinking the problem is their end, with a stuck key, or similar. Any ideas ?

Answer:thunderbird email change font size in hotmail email client

I don't know what is causing this but pretty sure "what it isn't".1. It is not the usual behaviour of a virus.2. It is not a stuck key their end. Keys don't come into the equation for received emails.Try sending an attachment to yourself and some other contact who will co-operate. That way you should be able to narrow down which end is responisible for the problem.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

i am using windows xp home edition..
thanks..
 

Answer:Solved: wrong email spelling in auto complete email address

Delete Firefox auto-complete entries

There is also an add on for firefox that allows you to manage autocomplete

Available features include:

* matching against bookmark addresses
* matching against page titles and bookmark names
* matching anywhere in the address, not just the beginning
* changing the sorting criterion to alphabetical by address or title, most frequently visited, most recently visited, or top-level pages first
* completing the best match inline
* temporarily or permanently disabling the suggestion popup
* excluding local pages and pages containing search results
* swapping the address and title columns on the suggestion popup
* highlighting the column where a match was found
* fine-tuning the popup appearance by hiding page titles, changing the number of visible suggestions, and setting the truncation method for long addresses and page titlesClick to expand...

Hi Geniuses:
I wanted to throw this out to you to see if there was a solution to my "inbox zero woes"

TECH SPECS:

Yahoo Email address (yes I know)
iPhone with Outlook App
Mac Computer with Mail APP
Extra Gmail account with a "send gmail from account"

What I found was that while on the road (most of my email use) the Outlook App for iPhone was fastest at fetching mail, and I LOVE the interface (ability to snooze emails, archive etc).

Problem is, my home mac with MAIL doesn't play nice when I archive Emails on my app.
Secondly, I also like to use gmail as a web client for searching files, using todo etc.

My question: can all of these play nice in the same sandbox? Can I archive on one device, and have it translated amongst the others? If not, what are my solutions (switching over to outlook on Mac? Just using a GMAIL address from now on). Would love some light / insight on this.

Many, Many thanks!
-Bryan.

Hello.
I've just found a pst file with all my old email. I'd like to put them back on the server (hotmail) but before doing that I've seen that some of them were not recived (or sent) to my actual address (@hotmail.com) but to an old one (@infinito.it). So I was thinking to export them from outlook 2013 to CSV, modify that address into the new one and then import them back on outlook 2013. The problem is that when I export them to CSV, in that file they don't have the date (received or sent) and so when I get them back on outlook 2013 they miss that info.
Can anyone help me doing this? I've been told that VBA macro should be useful for this, but having a look in it I have no idea of what I sould do.
Ah, instead of outlook 2013 I can also use thunderbird (45.3.0) if it's easier with it, but then I'd have to convert that pst file.
Thanks!

I didn't notice this before today. I'm running the 64 bit version of Windows 10 Pro, fully up to date, as well as the latest version of Windows Live Mail. I have a bunch of storage folders that I've created for email, so my actual inboxes are pretty much always empty as any mail I want to keep gets put into a storage folder.

When I do a search inside the program, all it's searching are the email subjects, not the actual contents of the messages.

Any idea how to fix this? I know this was an issue in the 64 bit version of Windows 7, as seen here.....

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/969165

.....but I'd have thought this would have been fixed by now! Is that fix still valid for Windows 10, or is there another solution? I really don't want to have to switch to another email client if I can help it.

Thanks!

Hello.
I have a large email group - over 200 names - in Outlook Express Address Book. A number of outdated email addresses bounced back to me. I wish to remove them from my Group. But OE seems to list only names, not email addresses. I cannot find a way to search by email address. Therefore I am faced with the task of looking up each name's properties to see if it's the email I need to eliminate.
Surely there must be a better way!
Or should I just find a better program to use? If so, suggestions?
Thanks.

Question: Email SPAM

Hi,

I keep getting these spam emails from random valid email addresses telling me I have X amount of dollars waiting for me in a online casino. Every time i delete and block the emails address i get another from another email address generated. Its obviously spyware, I have run AVG and spybot and it hasnt fixed the problem. I cant adjust my spam filters cause sometimes theres important emails which get IDd as SPAM by accident. Is there anyway to fix this?

Answer:Email SPAM

These spam emails are designed to get around your spam filter by changing sender addys with each sending. Have you gotten one from yourself yet. I have. Any email address can be add as sender to any email. Thus, there is really nothing you can do about it. No it's probably not spyware, just the way spammers operate. Don't know what email client you are using, but most have some way of making rules to send things to junk folder. Maybe something like 'any email containing casino in the subject'. Still a good idea to look through that folder for anything you need.

I am getting spam that looks like it coming from my email address.

When I use block sender on outlook express it looks like I am blocking all emails from from me to myself ?

Is this really true, am I blocking myself ?

Thanks

Answer:spam email

1) Someone may be spoofing your email address. Spammers like to do this-use someone else's address to make look like you sent the spam. Nothing you can do about it-just wait it out. They never use a email address for very long.

2) Your system could be infected. Scan with your antivirus, then with malware scanners.
Malwarebytes and Superantispyware are 2 good ones to use.

3) One of your contacts may be infected and not know it.

4) The only way to find out if you block yourself: Open up OE, and send yourself a message. If you have the rule set up to send the message to Deleted or other folder, check to see if the message is there.

See if they find anything.Search for your email address in Google. If it finds it you will need to change your email address, then never put your email adress on the Internet again (Spammers Engines find it).If the above do not help, contact your server for assistance.Google is NOT the only Search Engine!

Question: Email Spam

Hello,
I use a Hotmail email address and I have my "Junk Mail Filter" set to "Exclusive" so that the only emails that arrive in my inbox are from addresses that are in my address book. But I keep getting this one particular email and I can not block it.
The email comes as "[email protected]". I also have my email setup to show "Full message headers". When I look at the email header it says that it is from my email address. When I try to block it I get an error message that says "It is illegal to block your email address". And therefore it does not block it. I went into my email options and clicked on "Block Senders" and added "[email protected]" to the list but the emails still get through. Also, when I forward any email to friends I can see my address in my favorites list, but when I look in my address book I do not see my address, is that normal?
I've forwarded the emails from "[email protected]" to "[email protected]" but I still keep getting this email. Again, the email in question appears to be coming from the same email address that is recieving it. Can someone help me figure this out please? Thanks in advance!

This is just something I'd like to understand... unless it involves a really long answer that's not worth anyone's time.

How is it that I receive email which isn't addressed to me?

I get a fair amount of spam but it's not too bad, OH gets a lot more. When we look at the message source, we see the recipients listed and all the addresses after the @ are our ISP, but none of the names before the @ include the account names we use... well, sometimes they do, but far more don't.

So how is it that these are ever delivered into our inbox in the first place, when there isn't an address match? After all, if any of us sends a legit email to someone, and the address is no longer valid, it bounces.

I've never understood this... and I hate not understanding why things happen!

Question: Spam email

Running Windows 8 and Thunderbird.  Recently had a marked increase in spam email.  Have superantispyware installed and avast.  My isp said bounce back indicated my pc was infected.  I ran superantispyware, adaware, malawarebytes and a few others and got rid of some stuff, among others sefnit.  I reset thunderbird's junk learning and spam reduced to 1 or 2 that were automatically junked.  However, it has increased again almost to previous levels.  Superantispyware detected sefnit but after removing it appeared again, ran malawarebytes and that appeared to get rid of it.  What else can I do?  Thanks.

Answer:Spam email

G'day Thomas,

Question: Spam & Email Ads

How the heck do I get rid of this stuff? I use Outlook and have the Rules turned on, and it does put most (but not all!!!) of the junk into the "trash" folder, but is there a way to stop it?

I also get mail that says its an "opt-in" mailing. Well, i did not opt in to anything! Whenever I sign up for a site and it asks me to check whether I want to receive mailings from their "partners" I always leave it blank. If I respond to an "opt-in" mailing to be removed will that be as bad as responding to a spam?

I have seen a few that I also think are highly illegal. Like one where you can "buy" a "universal drivers license" that is good in all countries. But i really don't want to spend hours tracking down the domain #s and writing to them.

I'm just sick of email ads.

Question: email Spam

I am being overwhelmed by email spam that is not being picked up by my email provider. Even though I can block a spam, it still shows up on my deleted box, plus the sender of the spams can vary the spam 100,000 times and still sneak them through. Those items that my provider picks up and blocks are stored at the rate of 250 emails per day in my account and it is a royal pain going through it daily to find what I want and don't want.
This is my business account and my question is what is the best email spam control that I can get that is not overly techincal and allows me to screen and save those email that I want to keep. Changing my email is not an option.

I actually don't check my spam folder (Gmail) very often, I sometimes forget about it. I looked inside tonight and I cannot believe the amount of websites that know my name and my email address. Where and how are these spam sites obtaining my personal details. Maybe I need monitor and take this folder more seriously?

Answer:Where does spam email come from?

Hi Kol12

It comes from everywhere. You leave your email on a site, the site is compromised, details are stolen. Basically it happens every day. LinkedIn, Target, Home Depot, Yahoo they've all been broken into. Email address are then sold. Yahoo had 500 million accounts compromise and they stole address books from every account. Almost guarantee you have a friend with a Yahoo account.

Next every site you use should have a privacy policy. Most of us don't read but should. These policies state how your personal data will be used, if it can be sold, if it is supplied to business partners etc.

Finally email traverses the Web in clear text. That is why you never put personal information within eg., driver licenses, governement id numbers in mail.

I tell my students check spam / junk every day, nice short list, and use the empty folder function to clear. I say check every day as every once in a while a real email gets sorted there.

Question: Spam email.

Hi everyone,I have recently started to receive numourous emails into one of my email accounts.These emails mostly refer to Share trading and the like and others would appear to be from Mail delivery services informing me that the mail which I sent to ***** could not be delivered for a variety of reasons such as the mail address does not exist or the mail is suspected spam etc.I remember some time ago there was a Trojan or something that was using mail addresses from Contact lists to send out mails referring to Shares so I suspect my problem is something to do with this.I have checked my Mail Outbox and none of these email are listed as having been sent from my account. I have also run Norton system tools and Microsoft Defender which are both up to date and they are not showing any problems with my PC.Is it possible that my email address has been highjacked and these messages are being sent from someone elses PC unknown to them?Any help on this would be appreaciated as I'm receiving up to 30 messages a day and starting to get very frustrated.Prism

Answer:Spam email

There are literally Tons of Spam Filters out there free for use.
I prefer G-Locks "Spam Combat".
Even though I'm using the unregistered version, I still get updates when they're available and have use of all the filters they offer in this program.
And I really like the way you can Browse or screen your isp's mail server to see what's in there before receiving any of it. I disabled the "check for new mail" option in Outlook Express and only receive when I delete all the crap off of ther mail server.
Do a Google for G-Lock software if you like.

Question: Email spam

I know this is rather basic. It is something I have left alone for a long time and now think I ought to see if there is anything I can do about it. I have two email programs both of which I have used for quite a long time. One, Outlook, has never had any spam mail. The other, Thunderbird, gets 30 to 40 spam mails each day. Because of this I have been gradually switching over to Outlook, although I prefer the functionality of Thunderbird. Why are they so different? I have not to my knowledge done anything different, although the addresses are different.  Is there anything I can do to cut down the spam received by Thunderbird?  Of course I delete all the spam, it is a daily ritual and I never open or reply to them. Very rarely I am caught out. Quite a lot of the spam appears to be scams or worse. Thunderbird helpfully tags almost all the spam with 'Bulk'.

Answer:Email spam

I've been using Thunderbird for some time now, and like you, I was deleting spam every day.   Finally, because Thunderbird JunkFolder-parks emails Marked As Junk -- at least once for every original sender, I click Mark and then [Mark] as Junk.  It's a never-ending process, I have 150+ rules "marked as Junk."  While the spam still exists on the AT&T email server, again: Thunderbird JunkFolder-parks Marked As Junk.  Received a lot less spam this year -- why?  I dunno.

My mom has a lot of spam email what is the best way for her to remove all the spam forever ?
 

Answer:Best way to get rid of Spam email

1) The "Unsubscribe" method: Some emails have an "Unsubscribe" button at the button that makes them stop sending emails. For example, If you've signed up for a newsletter, you could make them stop sending emails by clicking "Unsubscribe"

2) The "Malware cleaning" method: I remember once when my laptop used to be infected with malware. Such malware compsomised my email by sending spam to my contacts as well as to myself. To fix this, you must run an Antivirus solution (Free or paid depending on your preference) which is up-to-date alongside a few second-opinion scanners such as HitmanPro, MalwareBytes Anti-Malware & Emsisoft Emergency Kit.

3) The "New email" method: If none of the two solutions stated above work, the second-to-last option would be to create a new email. As far as my personal preference goes, I prefer using Gmail as opposed to Yahoo, Hotmail ans so on. In my case for my mother, I created two Gmail accounts: One for personal interactions with friends, one for business purposes & one in which she receives new newsletters, horoscopes etc.

4) The "Reformat" method: If none of the above solutions work, your best option would be to do a clean install if Windows. This was the solution that worked in my base a few years ago when I was receiving and sending spam emails.

Hope I was of use!

Hi! I'll try to keep this as brief as possible, but it's really difficult to explain. One of my email buddies (fortunately he's an honest person) recently told me that any email I send him, from both my home and work computers, has a ton of garbled info attached to the end of the email... The info includes previous emails I've sent to other people, cell phone bill details, shopping details - ANY and EVERYTHING I do online is connected to my emails to him. It doesn't matter what email I use... My Outlook account at work, Gmail, Aol, RR... it all attaches info to EVERY email I send to him. Even the "Read Receipt" he receives when I click on one of his emails has info attached to it. !?!?!?!!! IT'S EXTREMELY DISTURBING! And he also receives info from my family members who use my computer at home, so it's not just MY info he's receiving.

I do know that he is on a "Whitelist" with the company he works for (for a very important reason), so he's not bound to the security that everyone else is protected by. He's had his computer restaged twice and it still keeps happening. He uses Outlook and it happens with his desktop AND his laptop at work.

I thought about talking to my IT Helpdesk at work, but haven't yet since this is happening from EVERY computer I use, so I know it's not a specific computer issue. Is there, perhaps, something that my friend has done, without my knowing, to gain access to my per... Read more

Hello, all!

I'm wondering, is there a way to set up an email server that can receive emails addressed to any email address under a specific domain, and automatically set up a mailbox for them (and forward the emails to a specific address)?

I've read that there are people that create a new email address for every website they register on so that they can figure out who leaked their email to spammers. I'd like to do this, but don't want to take the time to set up an email account every single time I register on a website.

For example, I register at Hardforum. I enter an email address: [email protected] When an email is sent to that address, the mailbox is automatically set up by the webserver, and messages are forwarded to my primary mailbox.

Thanks!

Hi, firstly please bear with me as i'm new to this. I'm trying to setup the email on our virtual server through cpanal and using Thunderbird 3 (although i did try it with Outlook 2007 and the same results.)

Using the given Incoming and Outgoing mail server info given (mail.domain.co.uk) and the mail server username, I get a failed to find error (using both POP3 and IMAP). If I change that too the SSL settings for Incoming / Outgoing (serverusername.miniserver.com), it works and autofinds Connection Security as STARTTLS and finds the ports too. With this I can send emails fine, but I am not getting incoming emails, and I don't know enough about it too see what I'm doing incorrect, any help would be great, thanks.

I posted this on yahoo answers first, but the only response I got was "restart your outloook and try later." *facepalm* Glad to have found a place more dedicated to such problems.

Hi

Is there some way of moving all messages from my hotmail account to another email address? So when I emails are sent to my hotmail address they are then sent to my other email address, (then deleted from hotmail).
Is there a program that can sit on the desktop that is always checking hotmail, and when a email is recieved it is then sent to another email address? (this address is not a hotmail address).

Any possibilities??
 

Answer:Make all email that is recieved from my hotmail account go to another email address.

if you have outlook express linked to your hotmail account you can run a rule on the mail - not sure if it works on webmail cia outlook/outlook express
