How Do I Stop The Spam?

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

I have an aol email address. How do I stop all the spam that I get every day? Some days I have over 500 spam. Should I change my email address our what should I do?

Thank You Irv

Dear Irv,

If you are willing to change your email address, I would get a new one with Gmail.

I believe they have the best spam filter available.

An email address with Gmail is free, includes a large amount of storage space (mine is currently 15GB of which I am only using 11%) you can access it from any computer or device with an internet connection, and as I already said, it has an excellent filter.

You can sign up for Gmail at
