My question is: When you click their links to unsubscribe to their spam, does that really work? Or are you just passing along your email addy to some other schmuck business?
That's what I thought. I did unsubscribe to some legit companies. I tried with some I didn't recognize and now receive more obscure ones. Lesson learned.AFAIK the general rule of thumb is ignore the email and use whatever spam filter your service provider has to 'flag' the sender
unless you know it is a legit company just advertising then the 'unsubscribe' button should work as intended
If it's a reputable company that you know, unsubscribing will remove you from their mailing list. If it's some random spammer you've never heard of, they are culling your email and unsubscribing lets them know they've got a live one.My question is: When you click their links to unsubscribe to their spam, does that really work?

We still use our Verizon email address. No issues.A while ago I had to switch from Verizon email to AOL. Verizon got out of the email biz and just did a free convert to AOL. Have to say, the AOL spam filters are great. I used to get tons of spam, now I get virtually nothing. I check the spam box once in a while to make sure a legit email didn't get caught.
