going a bit goofy here over all the junk in my mail. two problems really buggin' me
1. i have been faithfully marking emails to be blocked or blacklisted, but it seems that about half of the time i get a message the address is already on the list; why does blacklisting not block those addresses on my account?
2. Now i get a message that the blacklist is full and that i need to remove some items in order to add the latest offending addresses. I cannot find the list or how to remove... can someone point out how to do that annnnnnd i hope that the list is time ordered
thanks in advance for any help!!
First, welcome to the Forum!
1. I think it's either the filters don't work, or the email in the "From" field is a fake email and they are actually coming from different domains. Spammer use the trick to get around spam filters, but most anti-spam filter can see through the trick. Cox anti-spam is lacking IMO however.
2. Which webmail do you use? Classic? Enhanced? Or the "new" email platform? They all have different user interfaces, so the instructions will be different for each. I use the new platform, so I find my filters under Settings > Inbox > Filter Rules and Blocked Senders. Keep in mind these two things are separate so try the difference between creating a rule to delete the message versus blocking the user from emailing you in the first place. You can auto create a rule by opening a email, click the three lines next to delete, and click on "create filter rule".
thanks!! - i will work my way through these recommendations... i have Classic selected for the interface, but after logging on i wind up with the "new" version which i do not like as much as classic
any clues how to take stuff off my blacklist? even if it does not work, feels like I am trying

Settings > Inbox > Blocked Sender > Click on the tiny trash bin symbol to the right of the email. Or you can click the check box(s) and click "Delete Selected" if you have many.
I have noticed there is a delay, and sometimes it says "Blocked list has not been saved" but then it has. Does that glitch effect you?
there they are! Of course it is just a list and i have not a clue when they were added to the list....so to add more recent items i have delete some - wish they were dated
no issue with the "not saved glitch" for me
thanks for all the help!
