Thank you Alex,

I have already been using the "block sender" option however I get the same emails from another domain a few days after they figure out they have been blocked, how they know they have been blocked is beyond me. I get approximately 30 to 50 unwanted emails a day. So when I don't go in for a few days.... :^/

Glad to help!  Smiley Happy  I would definitely try using the SPAM reporting option referenced in the article too.

Re: How to change my primary email address? Acct now gets tons of spam mail and want to change it.

i have the same problem. but your answer is just for the primary access id. we want to change the

primary email address. someone has been using my email address and i want to change it. this has nothing to do with the primary member id. i have free email and want to change just the email address and to keep everything in it like my folders etc. i was told i could change this email address and keep everything in it. our access id is ok just need to change the primary email address. we all know that we can add sub email addresses. but we do not want to take the time to forward our emails from the primary to another account. we just want to change the primary email address we cannot do. it will not let us.
