How true! I can't get rid of these emails, so now I just delete them. Unsubscribe didn't work, nor did sending them a reply - even when there is a 'valid' address. The next step will be changing my primary email address. What a pain in the *** these people are! The most junk email I received was when I had AOL. GOOD RIDDANCE to AOL.

ITK, I sent you a pm (through this site), hope you received it/checked your mailbox here on this site.

I have a junk/spam hotmail account I set up for things I'm not sure about if I sign up for something. If I don't know who you are, you get deleted without me ever seeing whats in there...

If you are having problems, try contacting your ISP if they provide your e-mail service. They may be able to help you. When blocking you may have to be very persistent. I swear the same source sends e-mails out under different addresses. When you block one, they send the nasty stuff out under a different address.

TK, I sent you a pm (through this site), hope you received it/checked your mailbox here on this site.

mish, now I am worried! i normally get the messages from here on the regular email page. How come I didn't get the one you talk about? Otherwise isn't it supposed to be on the right hand side of this page where it says, Welcome and then your name? First I have trouble with unwanted email and now when I want to read your email, not there. Does this drive you crazy or what?

Thank you for getting back to me here, ITK. Didn't know if you received my pm. Haven't received yours yet.

Suggestion - Go to User CP at top of screen, chose edit options, and email, pm options. You can chose to be notified of pm while you are here or in an email. Hope that helps. Will look for your pm.

Also, when you go to User CP, you can click on list messages (on the left of that screen) to see your incoming and sent PMs from this site/forum.

I can't delete prior messages i received in the past. Tried to contact Technical Director or whoever is supposed to help and no response. Still messages won't go through. Also did what you said and still not right.

Maybe talk to much.
