Do you guys that have Yahoo email get lots of emails into your Bulk Folders?

I seem to have at least 5 or 6 a day and they all had some attachment with a virus that was disabled.

Just curious....

I don't have this problem. I only get maybe 1 bulk email a month. But then again, I hardly ever use my Yahoo account.

You musta entered your email address somewhere and the site has on-sold your email address

I have two yahoo accounts. One gets a piece of bulk mail like every 2 weeks. But my main account gets like 20 junk mail a day. I dont even delete it or check it every day. There are like 2500 pieces in there and yahoo just keeps deleting the oldest ones every day.

you won't get a virus as yahoo scans it with Norton already. So you are safe.

I have hotmail too but I choose not to use it as much...yahoo IMing is much better than hotmail..hands down!!

Have the same problem..get about 40 to 100 bulk emails a day. I've had my account for quite awhile now (6 plus years). Every once in awhile I'll go thru and unsubsribe to all of them and i'm good for about a month then I'm back to square one.

Have to try that tip though

I've got 1313 in my bulk mail folder now. Doesn't count against your disk space, and they delete the oldest every day. None of mine is due to preferences. I've used yahoo since 1998, so my email addy is out there being sold for over 5 years.

Use free email, get free spam. It's the universe ballancing itself out.

That doesn't just happen with free email...If you sign up for anything and use an email address...usually you will start to get spam at that email address...
