Spam email

I use Pegasus to collect my pop3 email. Suddenly this afternoon I started receiving hundreds of spam messages. I blocked several domains (mainly in Italy and Poland) in Manage My Mail. So far, this seems to have worked. All the messages seemed to be directed at the same email address (I didn't read them all).

Any suggestions on what else I could do if this doesn't work or I suffer another attack?

Re: Spam email

Sorry to hear you've had issues with receiving a lot of spam mail.

Hopefully blocking the domains will work. If not, you should be able to apply a spam filter using Pegasus Mail. The version in this guide may be a bit out of date: https://www.usp.ac.fj/index.php?id=mail_filter_pegasus0 but I hope it helps.

From 31st October 2022, I no longer have a regular presence here as I’ve moved on to a new role within Plusnet.
