Fed up of spam ads for sexy ladies, shop vouchers that don't exist etc
I have several email addresses, but only one that has more spam appearing than I have emails I can actually read. I have placed them in my spam folder, I have blacklisted them, which is what virgin told me to do when I contacted customer services, still they come and the number is increasing daily. As a novice please can anyone help. Can't find a solution on virgin help that I can actually understand.
As you will see in the link above, it is possible to set up your own filters in VM Webmail but it is like trying to hold back the tide.
Unfortunately, the longer you have an email address the more likely it is to be spammed. Eventually it may become necessary to stop using that address and set up a new one. I have done that in the past with a non VM email account.
Other email providers seem to have more effective spam filters than VM. In my experience Gmail seems to be great at weeding out spam so you could consider replacing your worst affected VM address with a Gmail account.
