Have you tried filtering all the spam emails out or blocking sender? Did you check out the web site link by any chance?

Yeah I looked at the websites and there are no opt out or unsubscribe buttons. I would bock the websites except it comes from a different person everytime. It's always like fdgjdksgjdfj@yahoo.com or kdgkdfjkladfj@sdkfjdsjkg.org or some other jibberish. Plus it is never is for me. Somehow it's always just in my mail box by a forward or some other way. & The one that's always like jasdhfasdhf@dkgjkj.org or whatever always says something about emilyhott85.... I can't stand it. I wish I could block like all the email from them and their domains. Is there a way to block them and addresses associated with them without individually blocking them all since it is a different address everytime? .....Thanks in advance. :whistling:

I am having a similar problem now and trying to resolve it. Mine started after I started Blue Frog Spam control. Right now I am using a mail client which allows me to return spam with the right address and wording. It's helping to some extent. I really don't know what to advise you at this point other than to look for a common thread in the From/Subject/Content parts and see if it can be use to filter/block.

I don't think the URL has much to do with it, but if your headers in your emails indicate that all the spam is originating from there, you could report the abuse.

Any ideas from others welcomed.
