How to I get rid of Spam?

I get so much spam on my Verizon account I can't use it as my main account.  I get pages of spam every day. I have a g-mail account and a mac.com account that works great.  Wish verizon.net did.  

 

I would think that Verizon would have a spam filter.

They do. Do you have it turned on for your email account? If not, do so, it may help. Of course you can also create custom filters to recognize and delete emails that get through the SPAM filter, but unfortunately the filtering is pretty basic, there is no ability to filter just by domain, for example.

Email Filters

 

Spam Detector

these are some helpful links for dealing with spam. 

 

I've shared this before, but thought I would share it again in case it helps, but always use best practices while on the internet.

 

 

  1. You should start reporting the spam with a spam button in the webmail client
  2. Forward spam emails that were not caught to spamdetector.notcaught@verizon.net
  3. Set your e-mail filter. An e-mail filter and spam blocking software are absolutely critical. Set these security measures to update automatically to ensure that you are protected from the latest threats.
  4. NEVER reply to spam. Replying to spam, even to "unsubscribe," could set you up for more spam.
  5. Protect your e-mail address and instant message ID. If you must post this information online, set up two identities, one for real use and one for online activities.
  6. Be wary of e-mail attachments. Change the settings on your e-mail program so that images and attachments are not opened automatically. Only open attachments from users known to you.
  7. Watch out for phishing scams. Don't click on links in e-mails or instant messages unless the sender is known to you. Instead, open a separate web browser and visit the site directly.
  8. Create smart and strong passwords. Use a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols.
  9. Never enter your personal information in a pop-up window. You may not be able to tell when a scammer has hijacked a seemingly legitimate site.
  10. Don't fill out online surveys, or register for contests or fan clubs. These may be fronts for spammers trying to collect your e-mail address
