I must have had at least 40 emails about credit cards, viagra and loans today. Very frustrating since they're not automatically going into the junk email folder. bumpkin 12:20 10 Sep 2016 It seems to come in spates, normal few dozen then suddenly hundreds. Govan1x 12:31 10 Sep 2016 You could try mailwasher free to see if that helps. Not tried the free version so cannot comment on it. OTT_B 12:35 10 Sep 2016 I was thinking there may be a new bot net that came active overnight... Thanks for the suggestion Govan1x, but I use webmail (hotmail) almost exclusively for personal emails....it's that account that being bombarded....2 more since I posted this thread! I guess I'm one of the lucky one's, who someone thinks would benefit for a great cut price load. Not so sure about the viagra though. Govan1x 14:47 10 Sep 2016 Maybe check your contacts to see if you have one in there that should not be. Maybe time to change your e-mail address not sure if changing the password would make any difference. Once you start getting the spam it is usually fairly hard to stop it. Govan1x 14:52 10 Sep 2016 Looks like they had problems in June so maybe they have been hit again. Click here OTT_B 15:35 10 Sep 2016 Govan1x I suspect you're right - I've got many mail accounts, and it's only my hotmail account that's getting the spam. Oh well! Forum Editor 16:16 10 Sep 2016 Spam is like the tides, it wishes back an forth all over the Internet all the time. Sometimes there are lulls, and sometimes there are deluges. It's a fact of life for anyone who spends much time online. Old Deuteronomy 16:42 10 Sep 2016 My partner had a similar deluge this morning but, I had none. We both use Outlook/Hotmail.
