Spam Emails

In use B.T.Yahoo for my emails I have the main account and my wife has her account using her own log in details ie email address and password.The problem is she seems to get a lot of junk emails in her bulk in box yet I get hardly any.Tonight she had 185 junk emails in her bulk box.Why does she get them and not me and how do I prevent them.

It seems as if you are already doing a fairly good job of avoiding them. Assuming that you have both been sensible with the format of your mail addresses -- johnsmith at must get tons of spam! -- then it is wise to be careful about where and to whom your addresses go.

Either that or there is a filter active on her account but not on yours -- check your webmail settings.

Can anyone tell me how to check my webmail settings as it might have a bearing on my previous posting titled emails.
