In the last month or two I have been receiving way more spam that I used to. I haven't changed any settings. Is there something you recommend?

Thank you for your question jeffg11561!

Sorry to hear you are getting too much spam. You can submit the spam to Spamcop and they will blacklist the spammers IP address. When an IP is blacklisted they will not be able to send email to anyone anymore. Below is a link to instructions on what to do.

Thanks James...I appreciate the advice. If I had to submit each bit of spam I receive to Spamcop I'd be doing it all day and would never get anything else done. I increased my level from 5 to 6 and perhaps that will help as well as creating a rule in Windows Live Mail sending emails that Norton identifies as potential spam to a specific spam folder so that, at least, less will jam up my inbox. The interesting thing to me is that I do not receive any of this type of spam through my other email provider. (Cablevision - Optimum Online)

Thanks for your response. You really only have to submit them here and there within a day or 2 and the spam should stop completely. Its not like filters where you have to monitor it all the time and hope your good email isn't sent to the trash as well. Spamcop blacklists them so you don't get email from them anymore.
