What no spam

  Legolas 14:37 10 May 2009

Since yesterday morning I have had a very noticeable reduction in the amount of spam I am getting in my email. I am with Virgin Media and when checking my email first thing in the morning I normally have a few dozen spam emails. Yesterday and today I have had less than a dozen. It looks like Virgin Media have upgraded their email spam filters. They did this a few years ago with a similar result, well done VM. Anyone else seen a reduction?

No, but you should have a spam filter.

It can be set to suit the circumstances, "100 to -10" from memory.

I have mine set at -1 and I receive just a few spam messages a week.

I'm also with Virgin and my spam seems about the same. I had about 8 this morning and 3 more this afternoon trying to sell me Viagra!

Well I think their must have been a blockage somewhere as I have just had a spam deluge. Oh well spam again with everything :))

I made a complaint to virgin about receiving spam after checking my account with them on line on thursday or friday.Automated reply saying they would be in touch within 3 days.You never know it may have helped but doubtful.

Virgin are migrating their multiple email services across Google Mail, it could be that your account has been moved and your witnessing one of the benefits of Google Mail, their rather excellent spam filters.

Mind you if you had moved I would have expected even less spam in your inbox, I get less than one a week that fails to hit the spam folder, and about one false positive every couple of months.
