How do I stop receiving junk mail

Posted

I get 20-25 spam mails every day or two. At one time someone advised me on filter use - it worked for a while and then didn't, Too many of the email addresses change one or two characters each time so the filter probably wouldn't work even if I could set it up. Can someone advise. Thanks.

You might try getting a gmail account, which automatically filters the spam out for you. Personally, I find the Priority Inbox pretty effective at only showing you the really important and not "junk" mail, as long as you train it right (by marking things important when they are, and not important if they mistakenly got flagged as important by the system).

Not really a firefox question, though.

Some e-mail providers have an option to sort incoming mail. Check with your provider.
