  1. Deleting spam email addresses


    Sorry that was an error by me

    I am on windows 10, using gmail or googlemail.

    I keep getting lots of spam emails which do go to my spam folder and I delete them.

    I now have a problem whereby when I send an email and go to the 'to' line these spam email adresses come up.

    I would like to know how to remove them and possibly block the emails completely.

    I have read information from windows which says to go to the options list and select 'more options' but there is no 'more options' in the list.

    What can I do?

    :)

  2. Auto-complete addresses full of spam emails

    Hi Microsoft folk,

    I have been using the Windows 10 mail app for a while now, and linked it with my hotmail account. For a while now, every time I start to compose an email and start typing a "to" address, the suggested autocomplete is filled with spam addresses (that are
    not on my contact list) and are not full email addresses. Is there a way that I can remove all of these suggestions, or even turn off autocomplete? I have cleared my junk folder and deleted items, and these suggestions remain.

    I have run a disk cleanup and cleared temp files, temporary internet files, and everything else that seemed appropriate. I have also deleted the account from the mail app and relinked it, and it was the same whether my account was present or not.

    Kind regards,

    Tom

  3. Spam Emails for pop3

    Hi,

    Thank you for the reply.


    • Which email address is configured in the Mail app?

    If you have Outlook.com configured then you may refer to the suggestions provided by “Dhenz S” from this thread to check if that helps.

    How to block spam emails in Outlook.com?

    You need to look at the “View installed Updates” screen to see the list of recently installed updates.

    Follow these steps to view installed updates:


    • Press “Windows key + X” and click on “Programs and Features”.

    • Click on “View Installed Updates”.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

  4. Deleting spam email addresses

    Spam from my sisters email

    True - although, more than a few emails would seem a little suspicous, rather than just a generated or "logged" email address.


    As well - it's quite possible the email isn't coming directly from her account. Some email providers allow one to send email, but use a different "from" address (i.e. gmail) - for example, your primary email address is L: someone@someplace.com, when you send a message it would appear to come from L: someone@noplace.com . . .

    It wouldn't surprise me, either, that if your sister had registered on a site, that they could be selling off email addresses - sometimes those really shady purchasers of these email lists will use some of these addresses to "mask" where the emails are actually coming from.

    Follow the suggestions tha have already been posted, first - defi change the password. Run a good A/V program, and check your rig over for any other malware. Do a good manual cleaning of internet files, too, both cookies, temp files, and any other tripe that ends up in your temp folders. Anything that doesn't want to be deleted nice and easy tends to not bode well . . . if the issue still continues, she may have to give some serious thought to closing the account and picking up a new email provider elsewhere.

    It's a PITA, for all involved.
