Go into your email options to make sure the Verizon spam detector is turned on. It could also be that your spam detector in outlook works differently and is catching more spam items. Please send me a private message if you need further help.
Sthoover, I agree with you completely. I've tried everything to reduce the spam in my Verizon inbox. Nothing I do seems to matter. No, I don't click on links in suspicious-looking emails; Yes, when suspicious-looking email arrives in my inbox -- even from sender addresses that are known to me -- I check with that sender before opening such emails; Yes, my spam detector is turned on; Yes, I spend a portion of nearly every day creating filters to block spam (even though all the spammer does is to turn around and create new spam addresses that have not yet been blocked!);Yes, I've complained to Verizon about this only to be told to send my spam to spamdetector.not caught (another exercise in futility). At this point, I am convinced that Verizon has the worst spam filtering system I've ever seen! Also at this point, I am so frustrated with the amount of spam that comes through my Verizon inbox that I'm thinking of yanking my Verizon internet service altogether. The only reason I've kept it thus far has been because of my desire to switch to FIOS. But FIOS looks like it's not going to land in my neighborhood until the next millennium. So why bother with this hassle? At this point, maybe the best strategy might be to switch to cable for internet access and to refer all my emails to my Gmail address -- where the spam filtering system is phenomenal AND free!
