I use the webmail to access my verizon email. Every morning and around lunch time I log into to check my email. In the mornings I have about 15 spam messages. Around lunch time I have anywhere from 5-10 spam messages. I mark all of them as spam. Over the passed few weeks, I noticed it's the same messages coming through. Why does the spam filter NOT work? How are these messages getting through.
Anyone else having this problem? I've read on the message boards that I need to change my filter and send everything to firstname.lastname@example.org. I did that the first week and I am still getting all this email. Forwarding the messages to email@example.com becomes very tedious. What other options are there? How do I get all this spam to stop?

so by moving it to the spam filter, you are saying that notifies Verizon. well shouldn't that be an indicator that it is spam, and verizons server's do something about it.
what is the point of moving it to spam or declaring something spam if verizon isn't going to do anything with this knowledge?

Your filter to automatically report these should look something like this:
[From / Subject / To / CC / To or CC]
[contains / doesn't contain / matches / doesn't match]
____________________________ (blank input field)
then automatically send notification to firstname.lastname@example.org
If Subject contains viagra then automatically send notification to email@example.com
This filter would forward any message with the word "viagra" in the subject line to Verizon's Spam Detector address and you would never even see it.

I am not the orig poster, but I have the same problem- but I dont understand what you mean by "use the filter." Can you or someone please explain how to do this. My inbox is (seriously) 99% spam at this point. Thanks
