I am getting the same SPAM email 100 times a day. I have tried blocking but it keeps coming.
What can I do?

Spammers are too clever to use the same email address and so they clone addresses often hijacking valid ones. This means that attempts in OE to block a particular address are unlikely to stop the flow of spam into your mailbox.

Similarly you could try blocking based on certain words but this requires an extensive amount of work to set up. There are a number of Spamkillers around that will help by identifying the spam but if you want to stop it entering your OE account in-box then the best option is to consider using something like MailWasher. click here

we all get spam mail from time to time ; just make sure you use mailwasher as already suggested and delete the mail from server, via mailwasher,any mails you do NOT want ; do NOT bounce any mail and do NOT click on any 'unsubscribe' tab

mailwaser is also very easy to set up

hope this suggestion helps?
