What is it?
Junk e-mail or spam, are unwanted e-mails about moneymaking schemes, porn sites, weight-loss programmes and more.
What can I do?
- Although MWEB automatically filters most spam before it reaches you, if one does slip through the net report it as ‘spam’ in MWEB Message Centre. If you are not using Message Centre, forward the e-mail to email@example.com.
- Never respond or unsubscribe to junk mail, as the sender then will know they have found an active e-mail address and send more.
