i hate these spam-emails ;(
you receive 10 emails and 8 of them move directly to the treshcan, because they are already on the junk-mail-list
but the most i hate the emails with changing adresses, so you can´t delete them with the junk-mail-list
and all these chain-mails about viruses that doesn´t exist... ;(

:notice: the world is full of spamers...

edit:
btw
ig, i´m sorry for you, because you have to read all these mails ;)

Stupid spam;( . I dont get viruses in my email but I do get a lot of advertisments. I wonder how much money those companies make off these email advertisments?

The admins over at www.amateur-hour.net have a nice little anti spam program.

Basically, all mail goes through the program, an authorization code is generated, the email is recieved, sent back and deleted.

Now the sender must re-send it with the reply #authorization code here, and then the person will get the email.



If that makes any sense at all. I'm no programmer, but thats how I figure it works. :)

Well you could send a virus but it would probably never work because most companies that send spam emails dont check theyre own email.

I know its a serious pain in the ass, but almost every one of those spam emails has a link or email address within it that can be accessed to clear your name off their mailing list. I know it sounds like a waste of time, but you'd be surprised that most of the emails come from a small amount of companies, etc... I used to get about 100+ spam emails a DAY ( :no: ;( :no: ) until I went through and unsubscribed to all of it. Now, I may get about 4-8 spam emails a day, mostly from the companies who "accidentally" put in a broken link to the unsubscribe page. It's a big difference! I can actually pick out which are worth saving and which are spam! :D :yes:

if they work...most of the time the links are fake or by desubscriping you subscripe for even more spam-mail...damn f******
i get spam-email from a company that change the email-adresse for every mail they send me and even if i desubscribe the pain goes on...
