hundreds of spam emails

Starting this morning, i started receiving hundreds of spam emails every hour.  I woke up with 887 today.  How can I get this to stop?

Re: hundreds of spam emails

How are you accessing the email?  With only your browser and the webmail interface?  Or with a desktop email client like Outlook or Thunderbird?  If only the webmail, did you check to see if you have the spam filters enabled?  On the Inbox page click on the gear icon in the upper right corner and then on Settings>>>>>>>.Advanced settings.  There you will see the option to turn it on or off.

I think it had something to do with my credit card getting hacked. This happened to my wife before too. Someone added her email to a bunch of mailing lists so she’s get hundreds at a time.

But you still need to check the spam setting by going into Settings in the account.  You can't do that using only the app.
