Spam

Anyone else getting a lot of spam for Norton and McAffe security lately. Seems to be coming from maybe Eastern Europe. 
Keep sending source trace copy to phishing@virginmedia.com black listing and marking as spam but still it comes.

Why doesn’t VM block all this? It’s clearly rubbish. 

Any other advice ?

Re: Spam

Good, then you won't be annoyed and post here complaining when the system rejects mail that is legitimate because VM's spam filters mistakenly but accidentally classify it as spam. Think again please.

Re: Spam

I'll see if it works first!  I won't be complaining about an action I've taken, that's a silly comment to make, it was suggested by another member I looked at other posts on here after all that's why we look.

Re: Spam

Well it is highly undesirable or I wouldn't have advised in the terms I did.

Re: Spam

So far its not stopped anything. Spam still coming in. I don't know how long it would take to be effective. So back to square one.

Re: Spam

I am new to the forum and I have to say that I am shocked by the negativity, rudeness and disrespect by SOME of the VIPs in SOME of the posts.   I love that they are giving their time to help and support us and share their superior IT knowledge but a little bit of love in the room and a bit more patience might convert IT dim-wits like me to the enlightenment a bit quicker.
