Spam

Every day I am getting dozens of spam emails  "to Jamct" (the start of my ntl email address) or " you have been chosen" for CBD Oil, Bitcoins, Test Dyson V8 vacs, funeral plans, free Amazon or Primark gift cards etc etc and always mark as spam, but they keep coming!.

Why doesn't VM block them before they reach me?.

Are all efficient Spam Blockers chargeable?. Does anyone recommend  a good 'Free ' version or advise me of the best chargeabl blocker?.

Re: Spam

You could probably ask this question 100 times and get 100 different answers.

I have several email addresses from a number of different providers.  Of the ones I use most often I get the least amount of spam on my VM addresses. I get the most spam on my msn.com address, the first I had and now only use as a disposable account for situations where security may be an issue.

So, if a giant tech company like Microsoft doesn't block them but tags them as spam why might Virgin Media do otherwise?
