    All of a sudden I have been recieving TONS of junk email in my business email address in Outlook. I dont give out this address if I'm shopping or anything online. I cant put the settings so that any address I dont know goes to my junk mail because if I have a new customer it will go to the junk mail. Anyone else have this problem and know how to fix it a bit? Let me know!

    I have a family member who ran into that, and it could be as simple as your email being put on a site (whether by yourself or perhaps by a past customer who was acting as a referral) and it being picked up and distributed to a spam 'list'. I am not certain exactly how to avoid this - however, in the end, this person had to just switch addresses unfortunately

    bummer.... we'll see how it goes. It's all of a sudden that I'm getting lots of offers for discounted Photoshop offers and other undesireable items being sold. Thanks for your post
