Unwanted emails

I have at least 20 unwated emails per day coming to my optus email address.

All the addresses are suspicious.

They all ask me to click on a link 

How do I stop the emails coming to me?

Re: Unwanted emails

Hey @Mark369, we do have a spam filter which you can activate via https://webmail.optusnet.com.au/. The email client you're using your Optus net email with will also have their own spam filter. You can flag specific senders so their emails are sent directly to your spam/junk folder. These messages are automatically deleted after a set period of time. If you're receiving suspicious emails requesting for any personal details, you can forward these emails through to abuse@optusnet.com.au.

Re: Unwanted emails

Thanks for the info.

Does this just send the email to be deleted folder, or does it block the sender.?

I'm marking unwanted emails but 20-30 still come in next day.

Re: Unwanted emails

@Mark369,

 

It won't block the sender unless you've flagged the email as such. From my knowledge we don't block senders at a server level it's at the email client level. If you're using Optus Net select the email and click the 'Report Spam' button. This will move the email to your Spam folder and also report the email through to us. The problem is that if you're receiving spam from multiple senders, there's nothing stopping them from using a different email address to send through the same spam content.

Re: Unwanted emails

A very peresistent spammer is @basistand.com . I have set up rules to filter and move to spam on my laptop but can't see how to do that on my ipad and iphone.
