Blueyonder must have Junk filtering and there is probably additional filtering in your email client.

The best way to avoid this issue is to have a separate email address aliases for all your activity on line and also email links from your websites. If the Junk then becomes too severe you can simply discard that email alias and set up a new one.

Personally I have one email alias for online shopping and another for banking. The another for eBay and another for everything else you have to sign up for. My private and business emails are not divulged to any service online and so I can narrow down the source of the Junk problem by which email alias they use. :wink:

All aliases point to my primary email address so get delivered to the same account but the sender doesn't know that. You can then set up rules to direct the rubbish straight to separate folders or even the Trash before you open them. So serious, proper stuff is then filtered from the crap.

Im always confused by spam as I have about 4 email addys I use and get very little spam on them.

I do know that a massive mistake you can make is to put your email address on a post etc.

I'm guessing maybe it's your webites that the bots are taking your email address from Gaz.

Like a fake viagra seller is genuinely going to remove you from his mailing list. It's about saying "yes this email address is active, please send more of this shit!" :roll:

Do you think the sort of people who send out spam like that have any intention of removing people from lists when they unsubscribe? To be honest, if I was a spammer and someone clicked unsubscribe on one of my mails, I'd want to do three things:

1. Use the unsubscribe link to take them to a website riddled with malware
2. Try to get them to disclose some information on that site
3. Because they're naive enough to click unsubscribe, send them loads more spam, as they're a good target.

All I do is tick the selection box on each spam or unwanted e-mail and mark it as Phishing scam, never see them again, spam has reduced to a trickle now as their stopped at the server when marked as Phishing.......... [smiley=thumbsup.gif]
