Hmm.. Actually, there's nothing you can do about these things. You can mark them as spam, but still they'd keep on going because it's actually fully-automated. They get our email addresses through site vendors, I guess. Sadly, spam detectors can't really detect them all, but pretty much see most. So don't forget to activate those, and keep on pressing 'spam' to those messages. It won't really clear them all, but at least it's better than doing nothing - which usually creates more bulk in the emails.

Hi Laydee, Thanks for your response. I too doing the same thing by activate the scam and daily my routing is to delete some atleast 50 scams. But the thing is we have to have a look into the scam mail. We can't blindly delete it. sometime some important mails are also going to scam. I have noticed this several times.
