    I've seam to get hit with a lot of spam mail
    on sites I've never visited.
    most the of the mail do go to my junk folder
    and when we have an option to block it
    it dose not as it sames 1's over and over when you click on to unsubscribe it keeps coming back - I've change my password several times but yet i still get them
    what can i do
    i cant even delete the account as its with microsoft (xbox)

    Clever! unsubscribe lets em know your email is legit,get ready for a larger influx as your address gets passed around.It's real simple if it's spam & gets in your inbox flag it as spam now that email address it came from goes straight to spam folder problem solved,now use delete button

    it dose not go to spam folder
    its goes threw my main inbox
    sites I've never been to or even heard of
    ie
    Canadian pharmacy
    why i wanna go there when i am n uk

    i cant even cancel the account
    due to link up with microsoft
    it wont let me delete it

    when you get these you have to mark them as junk.once they have your email address they have you.like you said,they just change their email address when you block them.i get them too and the only real solution is to make a new email account.just make a new account and never go back to the old one.it seems to me that they will close it due to inactivity.either way,who cares?

    get a yahoo account not only can you get throw away email addresses if you get spammed you can delete the master account,however doing so means the name will not be able to be used again,be sure to read their help file so you understand how it all works
