DH spam? Also how does spam work

Hey gurus, and fellow DH’ers,

Okay first, I hat spam like everyone else. The worst part is when I switch clients over to my server, and they get spammed a lot more than then did before.

Second, I am getting spam that is from "@spaceymail-mx2.g.dreamhost.com" A LOT 20 a day just in one account. Not to mention the other spam I am getting. I am using MAIL.app and dont know much about it, other than setting up mailboxes. How do I black list these emails, so I dont get anymore from them.

Lastly, How does spam work. I am afraid to open an email :slight_smile: What I have been doing is; Taking MAIL.app OFFLINE and then checking the email and then Deleting it. Then the seconds I hit GO ONLINE I CMD+K to empty the trash. So how does spam work?

anyone?

there is no need to take your email client offline
just search the wiki on how to enable anti spam for your accounts.
it will reduce it to just a few.
good luck
