The more you clean up your email, the faster it grows. Receiving Spam email is not only annoying, bothersome, and sometimes expensive, it could also cause you to completely have everything on your computer deleted.

Spam is difficult to control, even if you block the sender. They just use a different email address. There is another method to try, that with patience will get these spammers stopped.

View the full headers of the email.
