what can i do? here is my dilemma for potential remedies. for work i receive alot of emails from addresses previously unknown to my system, so what would be ideal would be a filter that could keep emails out by the recipient address, because i find an exhorbitant amount of the junk emails i get are  two a few names that show up time and time again, and these names are very similar to my name. if i could block emails to the 3-4 addresses, then i'd say my spam would be cut down by 75% or so....

i have not given my email out to anything unknown, signed up for anything weird, etc....i haven't even put my address publicly on any forums and i have zero spyware.

i need to alleviate this issue!

Although it may be difficult to prevent your email address from getting into the hands of spammers, keeping from receiving spam email is a little easier. Many developers of email software programs (such as Outlook Express, Eudora, etc.) and online mail services like Hotmail and Yahoo! have already developed tools within their software to help filter out a great deal of spam mail by recognizing certain characteristics of spam emails.

If these filtering tools aren't enough to get rid of unwanted spam email, there are also a few steps you can take to rid your inbox of spam. If there are common addresses or servers that spam email is coming to you from, most mail servers will allow you to block certain addresses or domains from sending email to you. Although this might block some of the email you'd like to receive, it cuts off the spam email at the source. You may also want to contact your system administrator to see if your current service has any other ways of guarding against incoming spam. Of course, no matter how many precautions are taken to get rid of incoming spam, unsolicited emails may still be able to get through. Learn to recognize unwanted email and delete it when you see it.
