Bad Emails



Most the time on my email I get safe things and I can delete. But the last week I have had really, really bad foul talking sexual explicit and I would like to know how I can get them to stop? I open 1 to see if I could unsubscribe but it was so bad I deleted it. Have you received any of these emails? This is not on Spark, it is on my AOl email.

  • Don't click the unsubscribe button - it shows them they have a "live" one and they sell your address on. Just delete them.
    I scroll down my emails and if I don't know the sender I mark it as spam and delete it straight away. Does AOL have a spam button? I pick up my email via Firefox and it is quite good at identifying spam, if you're using windows mail or Outlook express, set up a filter so if the message has any of the words you don't like in it it will be deleted straight away. - by HEATHERMOMO
  • Just keep hitting the spam button on AOL. It does take a while but it does work. - by FVHORVATH
