Talking How's Your Spam Lately?

Please Login to Remove!

Yes, I may be jinxing myself, but I have had no spam at all on my tmo address since December 19th. I have still been receiving the "pick of the day" on my Verizon address-even with filters in place. But I've decided to fight back.
I read that a lot of spam is generated by "zombie" computers infected with malware. When you attempt to "reply", the attempt fails because the malware has generated a non-existent user. But, there is a better way.
I Google the parent website of the spam, then look for a "contact us" clickon. I then copy that address and forward the spam to them along with a "your computer is sending spam" message. To me, it's like a "Hey buddy, your brake lights are out!" message.
So take a moment and re-direct the spam back to where it's coming from. It doesn't take much to wind up with malware these days, especially if you don't run detection and eradication programs on a regular basis.

Apply filter when - select "To" field * from the drop-down menu
Contains - type your BlackBerry email address
