    Unwanted e-mail
    How do I block an unwanted e-mail? I'm just a self learned home user, & very limited on Comp. use. Thank You.

    Welcome to Mac-Forums

    If you use any of the online email services (Gmail, Yahoo, Oullook), they all have in-built SPAM filters to block e-mail.

    If you are using your own domain/site for e-mail, ensure that the person you are hosting with is using SpamAssassin to deal with SPAM.

    If you are using your ISP's e-mail service, then contact them to see what they do to deal with SPAM e-mails.

    You ideally want to deal with SPAM right at the server before it ever comes into your mail client..

    I like GMails ability to learn from SPAM catches 95% of the SPAM in my account and the few that get through, I can "Report" those e-mails and Google now learns how to block those as well..

    With the fully trained system, I get maybe 1 or 2 SPAM e-mails a week..
    Mac-Forums is shutting down in the near future. Read this thread to learn more.
