Default E-mail problem

So I get up in the morning and check my e-mails. My in box is usually ok, but my junk mailbox, which will have a few personal messages, has become so clogged with trash it is unbelievable. There will be 50 to 150 e-mails from various senders, like meet Russian women, tactical flashlights, increase the size of your penis, buy cannabinol, meet local women who are hot for you and many others. What I mean is multiple duplicate messages from the same senders. Is this due to some setting I need to change on my pad, or do all of you get slammed with e-mails like I do. Yesterday morning, 487 new e-mails. Help please

Just get a new email address and roll into it over a month or so.

Do you use any sort of filter? I have mine setup on gmail and I got maybe 9-10 emails today. All legit.

You need to stop using your email to sign into all those alternative movie sites....

But seriously, why you looking at your junk mail folder?

Sounds like the spam system is doing its job....and the junk is ending up in the junk mail folder.

Who is your mail host? There are usually some settings you can go into..and dial things up if you want. By default spam filter settings are typically a bit "lax". You can crank them up..make them stronger, even set a default like "just delete obvious spam". This way less "junk" is in your junk mail folder....only email that is "not 100% sure it's spam...it just might be spam"...that would go to the junk folder.

It's a good idea to eyeball a junk mail folder once in a while, sometimes a legit email ends up there...called a "false positive".

because it's getting false positive spam flags and catching legitimate emails.

OP get a gmail account. The spam filters are way better there.
