Spam button on outlook mail on a mac.

Recommended Posts

I keep getting dodgy emails from Russian ladies who appear to be very fond of me for some reason.

I have been advised to put the messages into spam but I do not have a button that says spam .

What intrigues me is how have these emails started when I at all times make sure that I only email known sites .

Where is the spam button on outlook on a mac.

spam emails can be done via randomly generated emails.. mixing and using common names/phrases/words/objects etc randomly, and emailing them all, any that don't exist will be bounced back, and any that do won't...

 

from there, you can collect a database of 'working' email addresses...

 

Also, if someone you know was compromised in any way, and you're in their address book....

 

there's any number of ways you can get spam, without even doing anything - I once registered an email address to never use, never told anyone about it, didn't use it for any websites, and only logged in once every month, and on the first login, I had spam emails....

Any idea on how to get rid or stop them please.

There is no way of stopping them. If it is troubling you then maybe close the account altogether. If you are using Outlook webmail you should mark them as junk and it will move them into the junk folder. Eventually it should learn that this type of message should be moved straight into the junk folder so you will not notice them so much.

all you have to do is tick the little box at the beginning of the mail and delete it or, click the three little dots next to archive and rest your pointer on move to, and you can do what you want with them.
