    The last few months I have been receiving excessive amounts of spam from my
    Rochester.rr email account. The past week it has grown to exceed 15-20
    emails a day of inappropriate content. What can I do?

  4. Stop posting to usenet with your real email address. That's probably where
    the bulk of the spammers are getting your address. Also, NEVER click on an
    "unsubscribe" link on a spam mail. That only tells the spammer that your
    address is live AND someone actually reads the mail that gets sent there.
    Your address will then be sold to other spammers.

  5. Never use your primary email account. Create a secondary one and us it until
    the spammers have all shared it and bombarded you. Then delete the account
    and create a new one. Your primary account should be configured to only
    receive mail from people in your address book. Beware: Spammers can add
    themselves to your address book!

  6. Not without your permission, they can't.
