I use Win10 and the email client that came with it (Win mail)

 

Recently I have been inundated with junk/spam emails, but cannot find how to mark them as junk, or stop them coming in win mail.

Most of the junk mail that comes has a "unsubscribe link" but that did not work and I don't want to try again in case I get something nasty on my PC, can anyone tell me if there is a way to mark as junk, or even better is there a way to stop it ever getting into my inbox?

Hi,

 

What mail account you are using? something@gmail.com, something@outlook.com?

 

If you are using one of those free e-mail providers the best solution is to log into the web mail service https://mail.google.com, https://outlook.com, etc.

 

Mark the messages as SPAM using the webmail and the mail server will learn to recognize the spam (some servers are more efficient doing this than others) this is more effective than doing something at the client level.

"Most of the junk mail that comes has a "unsubscribe link" but that did not work and I don't want to try again"

--- That's an excellent idea

 

I am very interested in the hotmail.com account issue. I'm still on Windows 7 but will be upgrading to Windows 10.

I created a Hotmail.com account so I would have a Microsoft account

--- What I don't like about it is that as soon as I did create that Microsoft account I started receiving spam mail immediately and it's happening too often

--- Even though I can mark them as Junk, I don't have any confidence in hotmail

I also have 2 Yahoo & 1 Verizon email accounts and do not have any spam mails from any one of those 3 accounts other than a few times a year

--- That difference is more than bothersome to me

Although I don't have an answer for your request yet, I'm going to be searching for a solution also because I can see that happening when I upgrade to Win10

 

Someone else can certainly chime in on this but it might make sense for you to consider using free Microsoft Outlook email services

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-com/ 

 

On the blueyonder company, I'm not familiar with them but it appears to me that they are a legitimate company.

--- If they are send them an email about it

I did that once for a company named Blue Rhino and they asked me to forward the message to them

--- That cleared up that one for me

 

EDIT: See if this helps http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/junk-delete-sweep

Strangely it is the @blueyonder.co.uk email that is getting all the spam. Hotmail is Ok.

 

I will look at Outlook  after contacting Virgin Media if they cant help.

 

I had tried the link you sent earlier that don't work for me.

 

Thanks for you advice
