I don't understand how I can continue to get 20+ SPAM emails a day that the filter does not catch. I even login and tag them as SPAM per the instructions. I even forward the emails to "report SPAM" email alias, yet they keep on coming...same ones, over and over. I actually forwarded my verizon email to a live.com email address for about a week and it caught EVERY SPAM email that verizon didn't. Can ANYONE give me some advice on how to fix this issue? I want to keep my email address @ Verizon but I'm close to bailing on it....thanks in advance for any help!
there is no reason to drop the VZ email address. I recently changed to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/ and it does a good job of spam filtering with the verizon account.. Best part it is free & often updated. It is very easy to setup and has many more useful features than verizon's mail. Good luck
Thanks for the suggestion....I actually use Outlook 365 w/McAfee and it does filter almost all of my verizon SPAM, but I still get the SPAM on my iPhone. I know there are work arounds to avoid this issue, but the fact that Verizon cannot (or will not) block this SPAM with their filter is confusing to me...
If you keep getting SPAM from the same email addresses you can add the email addressses to the block list which will stop the SPAM.
I finally bailed...support at verizon is useless...conflicting and mediocre advice from techs. I now use gmail...it effectivly and easily washes all my spam...anything i want to keep i simply forward to my verizon account. When i then open my verizon account it is virtually spam free and i have my forwards TO SAVE AND WORK WITH...WHY CANT VERIZON STOP THE SPAM...???
I am sick and tired of the USELESS Verizon spam filtering! I often find a joke to send to as few as 6 friends, and often Verizon won't let me send it claiming it is spam! Yet, now I keep getting SPAM from an outfit in Ontario, Canada (often as many as15 to 20 per day). I try to use the UNSUBSCRIBE link and it asks you to input letters from a box shown. When you input them, it keeps saying you are inputting the wrong letters.
This is sickening! I am ready to dump Verizon for not only internet, but telephone as well as both cell phone lines. Their service stinks!
I find that recently the spam filter has stopped working like they used to. It has been about 8 weeks and I get about 20 to 25 spam mails a day. In the past I ddn't get that many in 6 months. I believe Verizon recently sold out to another company and I wonder if that has anything to do with it. I checked my filters and they are on. I cannot possibly anticipate who is going to send spam to me and or guess at their subject line. Spammers are clever at disguising words with symbols etc. I tried to go on chat to talk to Verizon about it and I got booted out before I got started.
