The casual account gets about 10-25 spam emails a day, and the other account gets none.
Is this because I am not giving my email out for newsletters and am keeping it only for online banking, personal friends, job etc?
Do spam messages only come from when someone types in their email to an un-trusted website? Or are the messages sent randomly by the spammer?
How do you know what websites will sell email address for money. Is there any real way to know if they are lying or not?
How about if you cancel a subscription with a website? Can they/do they give away your email then?
Now that I have those questions out, I’ll move to my real question...
Is there any way to stop the spam messages from being received? They are already being sent to my spam inbox, but sometimes a few legit emails get dumped there anyway. It is really hard to go through the massive amounts of emails and make sure I am not deleting something I want/need.
Is it possible to ban an IP address of the one sending the email/s? I just want to prevent the pointless emails from even coming into my spam box but am not sure of how to do it.
I am interested in other people’s opinions or experiences with this and any help or ideas you may have.
