I don't understand how I can continue to get 20+ SPAM emails a day that the filter does not catch. I even login and tag them as SPAM per the instructions. I even forward the emails to "report SPAM" email alias, yet they keep on coming...same ones, over and over. I actually forwarded my verizon email to a live.com email address for about a week and it caught EVERY SPAM email that verizon didn't. Can ANYONE give me some advice on how to fix this issue? I want to keep my email address @ Verizon but I'm close to bailing on it....thanks in advance for any help!
there is no reason to drop the VZ email address. I recently changed to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/ and it does a good job of spam filtering with the verizon account.. Best part it is free & often updated. It is very easy to setup and has many more useful features than verizon's mail. Good luck
Thanks for the suggestion....I actually use Outlook 365 w/McAfee and it does filter almost all of my verizon SPAM, but I still get the SPAM on my iPhone. I know there are work arounds to avoid this issue, but the fact that Verizon cannot (or will not) block this SPAM with their filter is confusing to me...
I finally bailed...support at verizon is useless...conflicting and mediocre advice from techs. I now use gmail...it effectivly and easily washes all my spam...anything i want to keep i simply forward to my verizon account. When i then open my verizon account it is virtually spam free and i have my forwards TO SAVE AND WORK WITH...WHY CANT VERIZON STOP THE SPAM...???
I am sick and tired of the USELESS Verizon spam filtering! I often find a joke to send to as few as 6 friends, and often Verizon won't let me send it claiming it is spam! Yet, now I keep getting SPAM from an outfit in Ontario, Canada (often as many as15 to 20 per day). I try to use the UNSUBSCRIBE link and it asks you to input letters from a box shown. When you input them, it keeps saying you are inputting the wrong letters.
This is sickening! I am ready to dump Verizon for not only internet, but telephone as well as both cell phone lines. Their service stinks!
I find that recently the spam filter has stopped working like they used to. It has been about 8 weeks and I get about 20 to 25 spam mails a day. In the past I ddn't get that many in 6 months. I believe Verizon recently sold out to another company and I wonder if that has anything to do with it. I checked my filters and they are on. I cannot possibly anticipate who is going to send spam to me and or guess at their subject line. Spammers are clever at disguising words with symbols etc. I tried to go on chat to talk to Verizon about it and I got booted out before I got started.
