    Why don't anybody make a spam program that you can totally block spam in google mail.
    I get at least 100 spam mail everyday from all over the U.S.
    And some RU addresses.
    They have women from 21 to 35 wanting to meet me.
    Or somebody wanting to sell me a service.
    I have them where they are filtered, and go to trash.
    But I don't even want them in my gmail account.
    I do bill pay on my Macbook.

    You mean Gmail itself isn't catching most of these and automatically sending them to the Spam inbox?

    there is a free utility called mailwasher that will auto delete most known spam before it gets to your computer. I used it years ago when I download my emails - it was one of the few I actually purchased the pro version.


    you can just leave your email online and not download it to your computer. that is what I do now.

    Sorry, I just realized you already said your spam is being filtered automatically.

    I don't want it coming to my computer period.
    Tired of deleting 100 plus emails a day.
    And I don't want them on my computer or phone.

    The biggest problem with spam filtering is the way most try to find it.
    Most spam filters try to analyze the contents of the email to judge its worthiness.
    The more reliable method is to judge where it is from, usually using IP block lists. Unfortunately, IP block lists tend to be a religious debate.

    All that said, I find that Outlook.com and Yahoo.com and Gmail.com all seem to do reasonably well with spam filtering. The trick is to assist them in the training of the filters by marking the mistakes as "spam/not-spam" as needed.

    I simplified things about 6 years ago after a diarrheal flood of spam poured into my Yahoo inbox. I created two Gmail accounts, and directed my important accounts to Gmail, which did a far better job of handling spam from the get-go. I dedicated one account to my Mobile Nations traffic, which is quite extensive by itself, especially as a Moderator, and left all the happy crapola on Yahoo.

    Doing everything on one account will drive you nuts, given the opportunity to let it do so. Each account has a different notification unique to it, as well, so I know what needs to be checked, and what isn't pressing.
