I contacted Yahoo again, but within the blink of an eye, I received a standard response email stating that my case was closed. How can I stop these emails? Anybody who has your home or office address can send you letters and anybody who has your email address can send you spam. You will get lots of junk email because it costs nothing to send. Email service providers such as Yahoo, Google and Microsoft filter out billions of spam emails per day. Only a few get through, and five to 20 per day is not an unusual number. However, the ones that get through should arrive in your spam folder.

Why am i receiving emails from dating sites
When the service filters spam emails, and when you report them as spam, they are moved to the Spam or Junk mail folder. If you check that for legitimate emails, you will see them there.
They will only be deleted when you empty the trash folder, which your email service provider will do on a regular basis. As mentioned, the From addresses may well be spoofed, and it would take some effort reading the headers to work out their actual source.
First, the company is trying to stop spam. However, remember its spam filters have to work for hundreds of millions of people, not just for you.Block all SPAM emails in Gmail using a simple trick.
This is also true for Google, Microsoft and other high-volume online service providers. The only viable option is online help pages that you have to figure out for yourself.

Threads collapsed expanded unthreaded. I am absolutely sick and fed up of some of the emails that get through to my email box, they seem to all be from dating and sex shop sites and I have never ever been on these sites or asked for emails off them.
There is no address on them and no way I can stop them from arriving in my email box. Most of them seem to be sexually orientated and the odd ones I have pressed on them to see if there is a way to unsubscribe only seems to double the amount they send. Do others get these unsolicited emails and does anybody know how to stop them? Otheriwse look at the domain they are coming from and block them using your blocking facility on the email. Hot mail are good at filtering these out so although they do come through - they go straight to junk!
I agree they are really annoying and I do take offence to them. If and when I get them I try to unsubscribe this sometimes works. I must assume you have some system on your computer to stop spam.
As I understand it if you go to your service provider and check your mail from there before it is downloaded to your computer this maybe a way of detering them. I guess I have not been that much help. Good Luck Have a good weekend.
