My email account was 'harvested' or stolen so now I receive nothing but spam or unwanted e-mails. I recently started another or secondary account which works well. I'd like to cancel the original account but can't see a way doing it.
At present it is a huge waste of time where I receive as many as 40 unwanted emails a day.
Any help please?
