I can't seem to get rid of a certain spammer who constantly invades my inbox. I click "Block Sender" but this spammer then uses another e-mail address to send his spam. I keep clicking
"Block Sender" but it appears to be hopeless. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of this spammer? Thank you.

Other than tracking down the spammer using IP addresses in the email headers (and there is no guaranteeing that you will be able to do that without significant effort), your other option is to screen your email using email filters or 3rd party programs like Mailwasher or eprompter. If it gets really bad, change your email address. I know this isn't the magic cure-all that you had hoped for.

I went there and the product was a free TRIAL. How is that free?
