I have been getting these random ads from memomail. They have all sorts of products, from dryers(today's ad) to telephone service. The most irritating thing is that they don't have a "remove from the list" link. I don't have a way to block them. Please help, because this is what should happen to every spammer Guy with axe

Using the reply link to have yourself removed from the list doesn't work and only confirms that your email addy is valid.

I found a long time ago, after an experiment, that the majority of the so-called links were bogus. And even when they did work, or said the removal was successful, I still got the spam.

Try using a spamblocking program like Mailwasher. If you use your ISP addy, most provide a spamblock feature to filter the messages.

If you are getting pop-ups, too, you can use a pop-up blocker. Many ISPs have them integrated into their software. Also, I believe almost all the browsers now have a popup blocker. Firefox, from Mozilla, automatically does it, but you can configure it to allow certain popups, like private message windows on forums like this.

Does that help you?
