Windows 7: Junk email


12 Nov 2010   #1

Junk email

I got a new email address and I have been getting hundreds of emails from ebay and there are no phone numbers, email addresses are anything I can do to stop the flood of emails. I've return hundreds of them and tell them what I think so is there anything I can do about this besides getting another email address?

Use the mail blocker.

But, you will have to record all the email addresses that Ebay use to email you and add them to a block list.

Bear in mind, some will not be blocked, mainly from sellers confirming shipping, obviously these can't be blocked all at once as the addresses are slightly different per seller.

If it's a new email address this shouldn't happen unless there is some sort of email virus on your pc. Have you got Microsoft Security Essentials? You could run it and see what it finds. If someone was using you address previously, or if it's very obvious like joe@aol.com, you probably don't want it anyway.
