emails

I'm not sure how it happened, maybe someone I know had there email account hacked? But now it seems I receive 10 to 20 emails daily from "account partners" who want me to purchase everything from the New York Times, to Viagra. It's the same email headings on a daily basis, the only difference is the domain name changes every day, so it's impossible to have the spam filter catch this email. I never open the email, I just delete them upon receipt. Is there any way to stop these emails short of changing my email address? And if I do change my email address and it's one of my friends who's been hacked, I'm guessing the new email account would just start receiving these scammer emails?

 

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide,

Rich S.

Mark them as spam and train the filter

If using a mail client some of them have spamfilter, alternative you need to log in to your webmail and do it

You can also create filter and move them to any folder  you want like deleted posts

Hi Pondus, Thank you for the quick response. I'll have to start logging onto my mail server as my Windows Live Mail does not seem to be learning? For several days in a row I marked the emails as spam, but everyday the emails come from a different web server address, so they are not moved into the spam folder. Hopefully my online mail server has a smarter spam filter?

 

Regards,

Rich S.
