The solution is to re-direct any known email addresses/subject lines etc that you usually get to your account to another account, and then to blackhole the account that's currently getting spammed to death.

Once done, ensure that you tell all known senders and websites that you wish to recieve mail from that your email address has changed, and to start sending to your new email address.

All the options for this are right there in your PN email facilities.

That doesn't make a scrap of difference!!
Mine are set to high and I still get 20+ a day!
Dread to think what anyone else gets who's spam level is not set to high!

What exactly does this setting do plusnet? Does it delete some spam before it reaches our inbox or does it just mark more of it as spam and still forward them to us?

Please read my post again.

It's about blackholing an email adress. It makes a world of difference. Email sent to blackholed adresses dissapears into a blackhole. Only email which is re-directed survives.

My apologies, mis-read your post, thought you meant options for spam "protection".
