I never get spam emails through comcast on my primary email addy but somehow on my second account it gets flooded.
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 12:32:13 AM EDT
Yes, my secondary is the one I use the most. It's just crazy.
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 12:35:03 AM EDT
I don't think I've ever logged into my Comcast email account.
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 2:42:36 AM EDT
yes, it's really out of control right now...

The first day that I signed up with bell south internet I started getting flooded with spam.

depends on the account name-- I have a couple accounts, and 2 of them get the SAME TYPE OF SPAM-- has been that way for a year or so now, since they were created. And I never really ever used those accounts. I think they generate "names" to spam, which is why some of my accounts don't get spam since they have a strange character in them, aren't names, etc. (i.e. they don't follow a certain format)

Also, I am unclear as to why Comcast has not done anything to counter this spam attack.
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 4:33:08 AM EDT
Yep!!!

Gettting a huge amount and it sucks!!

I report it and nothing changes......
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 4:43:34 AM EDT
Start a new email adress and never order anything or join any groups with it. Just use it for friends or business. Call the old account a secondary and use that to buy and join.

Symantic antispam software is a possibility.

It's not really all comcast's fault.

As an experiment start a third (hey they're free) comcast email and NEVER use it and see how much spam you get............

+1000000000000000000

I have complained and eventually stopped complaining and stopped clicking the report as spam....it is ridiculous, and I will probably drop comcast soon - and this is one of the main reasons for doing so...

I use my own domain :P

I had comcast for 4 months and the amount of spam was amazing.

Don't forget the spam that doesn't have any information, just a litle envelope indicating that you have mail. Who the hell would open that up?

I've since moved on to Graceba.

Link Posted: 12/31/2005 2:31:59 PM EDT

About 200 a day for all of my five email accounts.
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 3:00:58 PM EDT
I sick of their bullshit. They finally got the famous problem of not being able to email anyone with a Hotmail address fixed, and now I get a ton of spam each day. Morons.
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 3:03:49 PM EDT
I get tons of it. It's already beyond annoying, sort of like living next to train track, you get used it and block it out.
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 3:06:30 PM EDT
i have a gmail addy, it is almost spam proof. the funny part is the part before the @gmail.com part is they same as my old aol and comcast accounts which got spammed all of the time. now i get 4 or 5 month, and gmail has a free spam blocker that works pretty well, one one or 2 gets thru a month.

one of the best ways to stop spam is ad blockers and internet security of some kind, that way they cant get you email from you own account

if you want a gmail account im me your email addy and i will send you an invite
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 3:09:59 PM EDT
+1 I am also getting like 40 a day.......I get 0 on my gmail account, If anyone wants an invite IM me and ill hook you up.

Started out that way for me, just after Thanksgiving.
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 7:49:04 PM EDT
Just started for me in the last week. I used to get 0 spam mails. Now it's up to 15-20 a day.
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 8:21:57 PM EDT
Tons of spam on my comcast email.

Usually the to: field has a bunch of other "comcast.net" addys.

Pisses me off.
