Two of my IDNet email addresses receive an almost constant barrage of spam, but two others don't.  I've even had Spam purporting to be sent from one of my IDNet emails to another!

Have you turned on the spam filters in your customer portal?

I get a huge amount of spam via my @idnet.com address but at least two companies where I've used it (Adobe & vBulletin) have had their databases compromised. Spam filtering doesn't work for me because I get hundreds, possibly thousands of very similar emails all sent from different domains.

It's a waste of my time but the amount of work involved switching to another address is huge so I just live with it :rant2:

IDNet Help / iDNet email

Do many people here use an *@idnet.com email address?  I have a couple which are only used as alternate addresses against my normal one.

However, both of these are plagued with spam, despite the fact the addresses have very limited visibility.   Most, if not all of the spam, is of the Viagra, girls, porn site variety which I would have thought was fairly easily blocked if iDNet applied themselves to the task.  My regular email domain addresses attract an infinitesimal amount of spam, which I suspect is due to a technically clued up hosting company being on top of the problem. 

However my sister receives an inordinate amount which keeps filling up her iDNet email allowance.  Whilst I'm taking steps to move her to an alternate email, this is a drawn out process since accounts etc have to be changed.  Ultimately it doesn't say much for iDNet's technical ability that they can't seem to block most, if not all of the spam. 

Is anybody else finding this?  I know that iDNet email is regarded as being a *free* service, but filters don't always work since the 'content' is an image.
