I have had this email forever, but since there is now NO SPAM FILTER I am sick of wading through the spam looking for my mail. I want to close the account, but no one can tell me how. Anyone know, or is wildblue like hell- it lasts for eternity?

It won't work because I want to delete my PRIMARY account. Why did you people get rid of your spam filter in the first place? Seven years with no ploblems, and then, BAM, no filter and 50-100 spam messages a day. Way to take care of your customers. I guess the only way to delete the account is to delete Exede and find service somewhere else.

The spam filter was with Google's Gmail service. I agree it is a much better filter. Unfortunately Google terminated their agreement with all Internet Service Providers to use their Gmail service. Now the only way to get that is through signing up directly through them for a gmail account. For the primary if you call us at 855-463-9333 or email exedelistens@viasat.com we can help you out

Well, I emailed Exede and they shut off my wildblue email. Then I opened a gmail account. It was a pain getting my friends to switch over, but it was worth it.

Agreed.  Very much worth it to use an alternative email to what you are provided with the Viasat Internet Service.  Unfortunately, no matter how much you try and tell people that...they don't seem to get the message like you said :).
