Hey Lorlie, I have been all over the web recently. And I have been getting so much junk mail too. I block each on individually as they come in. It's the only thing I can think of doing too. It seems as though my junk mail has increase drastically lately and I don't know why. Almost everything I sign up for is using my alternate email. Yet, my primary email account get more junk everyday.
I use Outlook Express for viewing my emails on my primary account from Charter Communications my cable/internet provider and my Yahoo alternate account gets more use.
God only knows how many sites out there use auto-trigger mail-send on their visitors, thus obtaining the visitors' email address. The only, admittedly inconvenient, solution is to always be signed out of your email except when actually using it.
You could set up your email so the stuff you want is auto sorted into another folder you create, call it inbox 2. Then only the junk will be left in the main inbox which you can just tick 'select all' and then delete!
I don't have any first hand knowledge about this, but a friend just started using this service called Unroll.Me. Their website has a video that explains more about it. Basically, it takes all subscription-based emails and combines them into one daily email, I think, thus eliminating the hundreds that could come in. She only has started using it a few days ago and I haven't chatted with her about whether it is working for her or not.
Most of these 'communications' are unsolicited-like hair restoration ads!-though they claim I did subscribe. I've spent most of the day unsubscribing from all of them, and I have 3,604 to go. Needless to...
