It’s been just over a week, and the submission Form for User Tips is already working great. Several of you have already sent in your expert tips, and now I’m going through the initial submissions. I might be reaching out to some of you for clarification, so be on the lookout.
Our first User Tip comes to us courtesy of Mel, and is relevant to both Classic and New Mail users. Congrats to Mel, who should be on the lookout for an email addressing a reward!
After you’ve marked several hundred messages as spam and have a lengthy blocked address list that needs to be weeded out to make room for more blocked addresses, review the list and make note of the domains that recur frequently in your list.
Remove all of the blocked addresses that are included in those frequently occurring domains. Now that you’ve done that, add those domain names to your blocked address list and you won’t be getting anymore spam from those domains and you have lots more room for more blocked addresses.
So if you see 10 different addresses that share the same domain, you can just block the domain and free up 9 slots in your available blocked addresses. Thanks again to Mel for the tip.
I’m always looking for more, but don’t forget … this form is for USER TIPS only. Please no Customer Care requests and no product feedback. There’s plenty of room for suggestions in the Comments section .
