Angry Every single day

Every single day for many weeks now I get this same SPAM message to my .mac email. It goes straight to the junk folder, but still.

Anyone else getting the same, or am I working on some kind of new continuous junkmail record here?

Across my various email addresses, I get anywhere from 4 to 8 of these a day.

Very annoying.

If such emails are not being flagged as "SPAM" by your ISP, you should at least send them a copy with full headers expanded to their spam reporting address.

Or even consider joining spam cop and report them there:

FWIW My Apple Account gets zero SPAM, and I have used exclusively for Apple and iTunes.

A different account I use as a safety valve is a different story. I give this account to unknown quantities and keep them there until I am sure they do not use the To: or CC: box as a substitute for bulk mailing. Unfortunately some do and usually some one on their mailing list is contaminated and this addy ends up on a number of junk mailers address book.

That said it has been very quiet this year. Maybe 4 a month.

unfortunately - when you hand out your email address everywhere you go, you will receive spam eventually - that said i have a throw away email for that purpose or honey pot we say in the IT realm lol

but if you use apple mail you can set up a rule that anything from "earthlink" domain to go straight to junk and your issues will be done..
then every 5 days just browse your junk folder to check for good emails.
