Q498: I am getting a lot of unsolicited e-mails, is there anything I can do to stop them?

The best way to stop unsolicited e-mails is to protect your e-mail address and only give it out to those people you wish to receive e-mails from.

You can also contact your Internet Service Provider who may be able to block any future messages from the sender.

A further step is to forward the unwanted e-mails to abuse@ISPname (i.e abuse@AOL.com etc) stating that it is unwanted mail. If the sender persistently sends unsolicited mail then the ISP may be able to block all future e-mails from this person.
