    Spam in Yahoo Mail

    Hi all, recently my email inbox filled with spams, I can't stop them anymore, because "blocked address" already full. I don't know how to get out of this problem... I have to take a few minutes to remove them... and this will decrease the productivity of my work. Is anyone could or got any ideas how i can protect from being receive this spam again..

    You can report your spam problems at spamcop-
    http://www.spamcop.net/

    Dont give out your email address that much- if you need to, then format it so it looks like:

    fatphantomATyahoo.com (just a example.. thats not my real email addy)

    so spambots cant get your email.

    If the spam keeps coming, you can tell yahoo about this or make a new email account.

    Get a new email address, or live with it. It is, after all, a free account.

    exactly... get a couple of accounts. one for spam, one for mailing list(s), one for personal, one for registering with sites to retrieve passwords, etc (spam account)...

    I don't get ANY spam in my personal or work accounts... just cause I have all those other accounts. Works fine for me.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Or even better, if you have a mail server of your own..

    and you are registereing for let's say quicktime.. use quicktime@my1337mailserver.com (example)

    that way you can easily see who gave your mail addy to spammers

    also don't get involved in "chain mails"

    you get mails with hundreds upon hundreds of mail addies in CC !!

    educate your friends and threaten to mutilate them if they ever do add you to such a mail chain !!!
