It makes them A LOT of money. Cause they put advertisements on them, and send them to 10000's of people. It makes them money, that's why it's called unsolicited advertising.

Theirs web sites, you can go to. But I don't think it's worth while. It's just easier to get a spam blocker, and not worry about it. The spam blocker deletes the email, and they only get payed, if someone opens the email anyways.

It's not really worth it, to report it, plus theirs a lot of info, you need like the email headers and domain name (which is fake) and a lot else. You need the real domain name.

Oh wow. So its easy to make a lot of money that way. Thats wrong.
I am not sure if I have a spam blocker or not. Every time I go to my junk email folder, it automatically asks if I want to empty it. Thats not a spam blocker, is it?

Well if their in your junk folder, then yes you do have a spam blocker. It is very easy to make a lot of money, it's illegal advertising and unfortunately, it's hard to stop.

I have 16 junk emails right now Unfortunately spammers can also intercept email addresses and get them that way or use a contact form to send spam mail from.

Yeah I haven't had a lot either really, a few every now and then but Gmail deletes them after 30 days, so I don't worry about it, and it doesn't tell me how many I have, unless I check.

Thats good
Hotmail deletes them after 10 days. But its annoying when some emails get sent to your junk folder when its really not junk and then they get deleted

Yes, it is annoying but you can, mark them as not junk, and hotmail won't label them as junk anymore. It gets smarter as you use it

10 days that's not that long at all.

Yep, I don't check my junk folder either, it's not worth my time but software is pretty smart at keeping email that isn't junk out of junk. Like if you have the address in your contacts, it won't get listed as junk.

Yes thats awesome. But once I registered for public forums on a site, and the confirmation email got sent to the junk folder and deleted I had to re register.

Yes, that happens a lot I hate that, but confimation emails are send by a piece of code automatically, so the spam blocker things it's junk from a spammer.

Fortunately, theirs spam blockers that block and delete junk mail, so you don't have to worry about it.

Yeah it is a lot of junk mail. Theirs more there, then on the screen. See the scroll bar, it means theirs more. Of course, if I don't want to deal with an email, I just mark it junk, even though it's not.
