HELP-my email inbox is full of junk!
« on: February 06, 2016, 08:59:08 pm »
  I started working online 3 1/2 years ago and was such a novice I did not even know how to set up my own email then, until I figured it out.     Now my inbox is so full of spam and crap I wanna cry.  I have other emails now, but my main one that I use is connected to my PayPal.   Can I change my Paypal email? :BangHead:

Yes, you can change your email address to your paypal account. Just go to your account settings and click on email and add the email address you want to use and remove the one you no longer want to use.

Start over with a new email address. That is what I do every few years. It's some times impossible to escape spam and junk mail. Even at my house! lol

When you say working online - do you mean just taking surveys for pay?  And yes you can change your paypal email address.  Why couldn't you?  I have never heard of any thing that you were locked in for life with the same info.

after you have new email address, you can go to your paypal account and change it.

Start marking everything spam & eventually the spam will stop... mostly.
I have a time warner email mail account & I get spam in it ALL the time, no matter how many times I mark it.  However, yahoo & gmail seem to have have better spam filters than time warner & it generally stops spam there.

You can add emails to your paypal account easily, they have an add email option in your account.  My paypal has three emails associated to it.  :)

Although you can change your Paypal e-mail, I'm wondering why you'd want to.... I have a few online e-mail accounts, but I tend to use the one connected to my Paypal account as the one that I have connected to the sites that pay into it. That e-mail gets full of spam, but since I just use it for those sites that tend to create the spam in the first place, it doesn't really matter. If I'm providing an e-mail address where I will want to read their e-mails (eg my bank account, utilities, etc.), I'll use one of the others so that those important messages don't get lost in the sea of spam.

Next time you sign up for get paid sites set up an email account just for that, that way your personal email account won't get hammered by the spam, because it is all spam and the more you take surveys the more spam you will get.

Starting over with a new e-mail is, in my opinion, the best way.  Good luck whatever you choose to do.

Yes you can! Just go to your settings and click edit on the email address.  You couldddd also go through and click unsubscribe on all of the junk but that would take forever lol.  good luck!

I have had my email so long I have always just went through it and just started to unsubscribed. It sure cut down the junk by a lot. I am just not willing to give up my email, it's like my phone number I have had forever. Somethings I don't want to give up.

Yeah, that's why I keep one E-mail just for my business stuff. It was getting so bad with spam that I had to go through it an unsubscribe to a ton of stuff just to make it even somewhat manageable! Sometimes, they won't even let you unsubscribe!

Google JediJohnnie and May the Force be with you!
