Excess email spam solution?
Posted on 2011-05-12
I would like to know one thing.I am getting spam to my personal email account at my domain for the last 3 days.If I delete that mailbox ,say for a month or so and then reactivate will the spam rate stop.My email is not listed anywhere on the web even in advertisements or forms.
Will it work?I definitely need the email id back and for that I dont mind shutting it down for a month or so.I use Windows Live Mail as my hosting service.
At times I feel they are themselves encouraging spam,the reaon being that with Windows Live mail as hosting service I get around 25 spam mails per day.But when I temporarily shifted to another hosting provider for a day I got only a max of 5 mails,I tried this for two days and in both cases Windows Live Mail got more spam.
