    :thanks:How do I block junk mail from being sent. Although the junk mail is going into the junk mail folder, I would like to block them from coming. I always mark, sweep, but they continue to arrive. Thank you for your help.

    It's tough to stop the spam (OK, it's nearly impossible) once your email address is out there. My Gmail account does a good job of filtering spam into the spam folder. Some other services do better if you configure your account to only accept email from contacts in your address book. Another option is to create a new account, never give it out, and use a program such as SpamFighter to help scan your incoming email. That works equally as well with free accounts, or if you wanted to buy your own personal domain name.
