Ebay, verizon, they're both equally worthless.  But that's another story.

 

Seriously since I started forwarding individual emails the nunber of spam emails I receive daily has doubled.  And they're all for the same products over and over and over again every single day. There has to be a way verizon, why aren't you trying to figure out what that way is???

Thanks for this, JOSEm441.  I actually signed up for ZOHO's free Domain-based business version, and it's terrific!  It's highly configurable, which I really appreciate, although I would expect the Free Personal Account version (listed below the business plan versions on the sign-up page) to be simpler to set up.  I had never heard of ZOHO, but I've since seen reviews where they are so highly recommended, and am really glad you pointed me in their direction!

The problem is aslo that I have my VZ mail being pushed to my phone.  So I get a bunch of spam mail sent to my phone.  I have tried to tag them as spam mail in the VZ web application, but I still recieve most of the same spam messages.

My Verizon spam filter used to work fairly well but in just the last three or four weeks it has become worthless.  I am now getting a bunch of spam emails  and they are also being pushed through to my cell phone.  I never had this problem before.  Has Verizon changed something that is making the spam filter much less effective?

Nope.  Just more and "better" spammers. 

 

As I have mentioned before, I have two FIOS accounts each with an email.  The older one gets tons of spam, about 2/3 stopped by the spam filter but about 20-30 a day that are currently getting through.  My newer one that is the one I now use has only gotten 2 spam messages getting through in two years.

DITTO

when I complained last year, techs said" create a new email address"....done.   this month over 115 spam messages inbox of secondary user, 54 primary user. 

Easy to id as SUBJECT LINE has text followed by a number!

Please inform Sandy Miller that I don't need a"workers needed from home$47@hr" email 7 x daily.....I like being a trophy wife.

Add me to the list of users who can't understand why the Verizon spam filter isn't better.

 

I've recently started getting messages that are very obviously spam yet they're delivered to my inbox.  "From" is often "Cool" and Subject "Buy Watches Rolex," or "Viagra," etc. etc.

 

I don't get why Verizon's filter doesn't see these as the spam they are and block them.

Agreed. Add me to the list of long time Verizon users who protected his email...but in the last several months SPAM has been pounding my email...and the SPAM Filter does not work. 

 

I continually mark email as SPAM but the exact same email continues to get through the SPAM filter into my inbox. 

 

My Outlook was able to detect the SPAM without any assistance from me but that doesn't keep it from ending up on my iPhone or iPad...all because the Verizon SPAM Filter is worthless...in my opinion. 

 

When will Verizon take note?

Agreed.  My wife and I have noticed the same thing.  Spam filter used to work pretty good.  In the last 4 weeks or so, messages that should have gotten caught (IMHO) haven't.

I agree with everhything that has been said about the useless spam filter.  It is getting worse.  Even more galling is that the "spam detector" now stops me from forward legitimate email, such as purchased show tickets, because it has determined the tickets are spam.  Followed directions to have it released from spam detector, 3 times, nothing happened.  I will use verizon.net only for pure email junk, nothing I actually expect to receive.  BAD!
