Junk mail bin

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Okay, I finally figured out how to get rid of unwanted mail. First, I went to options on Hotmail and chose Junk Mail filter. I was getting a lot of porno offers and I really don't need it. So I finally figured out how to make it so that I can get rid of the junk mail without checking to see if its anything I need. But I still get unwanted emails in my inbox. Whether I block or try to remove my name at the bottom, the same email comes but with a different address. Its making me mad! Does anyone have Hotmail?

Yeah, I just click on anything from an unknown sender and delete it.

The only computers that I use is in the computer lab at school. They prohibit us from looking at anything offensive. But sometimes, I see messages in the inbox that actually say very gross things. Like this morning, I got one that should be addressed to a man. Asking me about things I don't have(If you know what I mean) I delete them and everything, but when I finally have my onw computer??? Maybe I should marry a computer wiz,huh? Just kidding!

I recently put my junk mail indicator on low, and I find that it's more bother than it's worth. Important mail was put in my junk mail folder, and a lot of junk still got through to my inbox. So I took the filter off...I can live with deleting the junk manually. It doesn't take much effort anyways!

You could set it to exclusive, then only emails that are from a sender included in your address book will go into inbox and everything else in Junk Mail.

I, too, found the junk mail filter to be useless. Exclusive is not the answer because I have my email address on forums, on job search sites, and even have a link on my website. I would venture a guess that about 1/3 of my wanted mail is from people who are not in my address book.

Mail that I wanted was still going into the junk mail folder, which meant I was still forced to comb through it and delete the junk.

I have a separate e-mail program, called Outlook Express, and a perpetual e-mail address through Apple (because I own one of their computers). I can set folders and rules in OE and it sorts things for me. For example, I have a folder for stuff from friends, stuff from family, update notices for this site, etc. and a general box for everything else. So if I don't feel llike looking at the junk mail, I don't look in that box. Because I request info and get a few newsletters and such too, but I get tired of the gambling ads!
