postmaster@verizon.net Delivery Notification: Delivery has failed

Message 1 of 3

My email box keeps getting flooded with delivery has failed notifications.  I know this means my email address has probably been hacked but how do I stop it?

 

Thanks,

Don

First thing is to reset your password and secret question/answer. Next, I would try setting up a filter to automatically move the messages to a separate folder (or the Trash).

 

I would let that work for a few days, then turn it off so you don't miss any legitimate Delivery Failure notifications.
