How to get rid of SPAM messages that just keep coming after being reported. themolloys4 5/12/09 6:37 AM
I'm getting about 80-100 spam messages a day over the past three weeks.  After reporting as spam they are still coming.  Anyone have any ideas how to get rid of them?

Do they come to your spam folder or your inbox?

They arrive in my spam folder and then clog up my account.

Well, I don't think they really "clog up" your account. You should just ignore the contents of your spam folder and gmail will automatically get rid of it for you after a while.

Ever since I went to the newer version of Gmail I've been getting so much Spam 100-300 or more a week .. WTH ... delete and report and unsubscribe doesn't work ... I've tried setting my account back to the older version but each time I sign on again I am in the new version .. and spam spam spam ... I have gone 4 yrs with no spam until now .. any suggestions on getting rid of it for ever would appreciate your answers ..

The spam has nothing to do with older versus newer.

Are the spam coming to your inbox or to your spam folder? Are they coming directly to your gmail.com address, or are they being forwarded from another address.

Unsubscribing from spam is about the worst thing you can do. Spammers don't take you off their lists, and they sometimes use unsubscribe requests as a confirmation that someone is reading their mail so they should send more. This could explain your increased spam load.

I think all the questions are right but the ANSWERS don't address the problem at all.  They say to just ignore the contents of your SPAM BOX. WHAT?

I had to much spam I opened another gmail account. 
So guess what? I cannot DELETE the old account. It will not let me.  I have tired everything. Sent in notes like this with no avail. Now what?

So, here is question 1: 
WHO is out there in the GMAIL world that I can send a REAL email to and not waste my time writing to someone who simply has the same issues as I do?

Question 2:
Is there another good, sound email company out there someone can suggested other than GMAIL?

I'll use it and let the rest of the millions of Gmail SPAM pile up and forget about it.

I'm really upset there is NO one to talk to.

So how do I start a NEW DISCUSSION?

Sorry but this can't be that difficult can it?

It is known that "You get what you pay for" :-)
Personally I'm bery happy w/ my gmail.
 
1) Spam in the spam folder does not bother me (I've even set a filter so they are marked as read always and I don't have to see that bold unread counter in front of my eyes)
2) Old accounts? Well, leave them untouched, and just like my flowers, they will die... :-(
3) Sorry for waste your time.
