Every day I get excessive amounts of junk mail to my Cox Email Account which I move to Junk Mail. I'm not sure I'm getting a "stop" on all the email messages that hits my junk mail account. Most of my e-mail goes to my Outlook email account.
What would be the best way to stop this junk mail? Make my primary email Outlook mail and delete my cox email account?
This problem started about 3 months ago. I'm inundated with junk, junk, spam, junk! It makes me avoid checking email every day, cuz I spend the majority of my time deleting emails. What is happening? When will I see a solution offered to me?
I must forward AT LEAST 20 emails a day to email@example.com, and it seems to be more of a placebo than anything, because the incessant spam WILL NOT STOP. Always seems be related to either medical or home warranty/improvement items, but I know it's spam when I see the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org or something to that extent. And oftentimes, I will see my username embedded within the email address, and a couple times lately, it's made to look like I sent it to myself. It's as bad if not worse than the incessant robocalls we get every day. The biggest domain violator seems to be mypentax.com; why can't this domain be blocked at the admin level? It would stop about 40% of the spam. Granted I have found a way to reroute the spam to my junk folder, but I've had to set up so many filters that many legit emails get redirected there. It is not a pleasant user experience and it needs to be fixed years ago.
JP, when Cox first got hit by the Spam Explosion, I got lots of junk from mypentax. lately I haven't received anything from them. all of my recent spams are from dot site or dot website.
