That is a limitation in Mail that I do not know a workaround for. mad I will risk sounding like a broken record and say that there is an easy work around in Airmail.

Not a bad idea but that doesn't work either. I just tried it on my iPad with an attached bluetooth keyboard. crazy

I've been wondering whether an attached keyboard would regain lost functionality.

I imagine that your "no" is across the board. frown

You misunderstand, joemikeb, you solved it with your instructions. I was explaining to Artie505 why it had to be done this way, because you can't delete a message without selecting it, which automatically opens it. Something I would rather not do because I do not want to open spam on the iPad. You can only delete it without opening it by deleting ALL, so taking out what I want and then doing a delete all would basically work. A few loose ends I can deal with.

Got it. Thanks! (Perhaps one of the reasons for the continuing decrease in iPad sales?)

I'm missing something here. Why can't you go to the All Inboxes screen, click Edit, tick the circle next to each message you want to delete, then click Trash?

Cuz it opens the email to even mark it for delete. I noticed that on the MBP as a difference between 10.6 and 10.7. You don't get a list and double click to open each email, they just automatically open. Or am I missing something here? On my MBP, which has LS, as a spam email comes up LS starts asking for ports and I deny them. I did this for awhile on one of my email accounts, and it did clean it up. But if I open a spam email on the iPad, I would never know what ports it is using or be able to block them.

Clarity: LS cleaned up that account and there is very little spam on that account ON THE IPAD ALSO. Now another account is being spammed.

I started thinking about this, and both of those accounts are from the same provider, my other accounts are completely clean. Hmmm...

I think the culprit is EarthLink, that they may have released email addresses. It shouldn't be surprising, whenever you call tech support the first thing the overseas support asks you for is your password. Say whaaa? I've told US support about this. Does anyone have any suggestions here about how to complain about these spams without tech support just telling you to put some kind of challenge-response on it and make it the problem of those people legitimately mailing me?

Yes. i've had those addresses for over 15 years. The first account that got spammed was not surprising, it's the account I use the most. The second one is a more private email address, friends, etc

Can I set up a script to forward them to spam@earthlink.net? I think I have to keep bouncing them back to EarthLink until they get the message.

I doubt that spam@earthlink.net is a valid address, but I don't suppose it can hurt to try.

Verizon gives me the option to move spam into a "Spam" mailbox, but I've got to log in to do it...PIA, but usually productive.

Doesn't Earthlink offer you a similar means to designate mail as spam for them to investigate?

I would have thought that Earthlink would have a built-in mechanism for doing such. (Or am I missing something?)

You could also set up parallel email accounts with another provider (eg, Gmail), have your Earthlink email messages forwarded to same, and then relegate them to Gmail's spam folder via filters. A little roundabout but workable.

Brilliant! Simple. Google will pick them off so easily, most are coming from .edu domains. Just have to reply from my EarthLink email address. Can probably set that up somewhere...

Gmail can be configured so that when you reply to a message that Gmail has "fetched" from another account the reply will appear to come from the original account. I know that will work using the Gmail web interface but I don't know if that will work when you are using a local client like Mail to access the messages.

The plot thickens. So, I called the college IT department where most of these more fast and furious spams are coming from. They are being spoofed and there are attorneys involved. I was instructed to forward the emails to the IT department.

They were making my life miserable, and for the first time ever, Verizon failed to deal with spam. mad (Verizon used to allow me to blacklist domains, but that option is no longer available. Booo!)

Luckily, though, the spam was all coming to my TrashMail account, so I simply deleted it and created a new one. Problem solved! smile

(I maintain an e-mail address specifically for those entities that have no business asking for one but demand one anyhow...the entities that are most likely to be sources of spam.)

Edit: After a while I began forwarding the e-mails to webmaster@eku.edu, but I never heard back and finally got bored and deleted the account.

Perhaps someone could explain why eku.edu (Eastern Kentucky University) seems to be a hot bed of spamming. On the surface it would seem to be a reputable place, but from the latest discussion here it would seem not. confused

The best I can do is repeat slolerner's "They are being spoofed and there are attorneys involved." (Emphasis added)

I'm sure that some input from tacit would be helpful.

I wonder if anybody else will report similar eku.edu spam or could it be more or less limited to New Yorkers, perhaps originating from some website that we're more likely to visit than non-NYers?

As Artie505 said, they are being spoofed and have not been able to stop it despite their efforts. As Artie also said, Verizon did not/could not filter it despite many complaints. It's not local and the emails are not for local services or products. They are hitting email providers.

That clarification muddies the waters.

Of my five Verizon e-mail accounts, why only the "insecure" one?

And how do they know my alternate user name? (Some of the spam was addressed [Edit: in the body of the e-mail] to abc from abc@verizon.net, which I never use as my name, and some was addressed to xyz, which I use only when posting with the abc address and is in no other way associated with the account.)

I wonder if Verizon can't stop the spam because it would involve blacklisting all e-mail from eku.edu, the good along with the bad?

(I don't remember ever seeing any content...just little blue boxes with ?s, so I've got zero idea what they're pushing.)

They might be hiding beacons or worse.
