By reading your message, it reads that someone has your E-mail & its been sold to everyone out there on the Internet or someone doesn't like you for some reason or other. My suggestion is to create a new user ID using your SBC ISP. I know you will have to inform all of your friends, family & so on of the new ID. That way you will know all the E-mail coming to your new ID should be legit. The old ID will be your "garbage" collector. You shouldn't have to use your filter once you have established a new user ID. Be very careful of message boards you sign-up to. This is where most of the Cyberspace E-mailers pick-up your ID. So when you sign-up to any message boards, use the bad ID & only use your new ID to whom you know & trust. Any time people can access you user ID, they can get the information & sign you up to many websites without your permission. Hope this helps. (:>)
How do we stop/block them? For every filter you set up a half a dozen other spellings show up. Plus many are ignoring the "Sexually Explicit" requirement, mostly because they are being routed or sent from outside the USA. I have max'd out my IPS filters and still get massive amounts of Bi_____, Sl___, hardcore, mother/son, father/daughter, animal, etc emails. NOTE: I do not visit those site, reply to the emails, or have anything to do with them but I get bombarded. Some make it to my inbox but most are sitting in my bulk box.
I currently use SBC as my ISP and send/receive email via sbc.yahoo (sbcglobal.net). SBC has not been very much help. I sure could use some help.
