I can not believe the amount of Spam I receive through my FIOS address, and this is with my so-called spam detector turned on. I have GMail and a business email account, and these almost never get any spam, and yet my verizon account, which I hardly even use, gets A TON.
doug use the filters to filter the ext like .info, .in etc .or use another email client like windows mail or windows live and setup the safe list.
one more doug **bleep** you can forward your verizon account to your gmail account and gmail will deal with the spam issue.
...or any other browser based account (hotmail, yahoo, live, gmail, googlemail, etc)
