Re: Too many SPAM emails!

Hi gabbyk,

 

I've just gotten word that the switch has been made. We should expect better spam filtering now moving forward.

"What am I supposed to do?"

 

All you can do is delete the spam.  All email services are victims of spam, unfortunately, and spammers get around all efforts to stop the spam.

Re: Too many SPAM emails!

That's true but I get tons of it from hughesnet, not as much from my Gmail 🤔

Re: Too many SPAM emails!

Could you do without the HN account?  If you ever unsubscribe from the service, you won't be able to keep it, whereas you can take a Gmail account anywhere. 

 

EDIT: the HN  reps on this site can take a look at your account and can involve the email managers, and you may (or may not) see less spam.  I wouldn't count on it, as spammers have a way of bypassing measures to stop them.   The reps are on M-F during business hours, and they usually respond within a day or two.

Re: Too many SPAM emails!

Good morning gabbyk, 

 

Thanks for posting. Are the 100 spam emails a day a more recent occurrence? If so, when did this start?

 

Otherwise, please be careful where you provide your e-mail address and mark as many spam emails as spam to help our spam controls learn and improve. We should be switching over to a more effective spam filter soon so a reduction in spam emails should be on the way.

 

Your cooperation, patience, and understanding are much appreciated.
