SPAM email

Since the merger of exede/wildblue my email has been diluged with upwards of 75 spams each day. Even after a two hour phone beef and 30 minute take over by their IT department I still have received 78 spams just today. It seems it is time for a class action suit against this abuse. The next step seems to be buying an after market spam blocker. At over $100 a month to Exede why do I have to buy additional protection from spammers?

Or you can do as many have done and switch to a GMail account. No charge, no spam. That is what I did years ago, when I was on Hughesnet and started having problems. I don't use the Wildblue/Exede email system, which is very week in handling spam.

Hi Keith, I do understand your frustration. This is not confined to just Exede email providers. Spammers are becoming more sophisticated and making it difficult to get rid of them. Gmail does do a great job blocking them and is an option for you.

Here are a couple of articles to help control spam in Exede email;
