Over the last week or so we've noticed an increase of SPAM emails on our Vodafone hosted ihug email account.

 

Funnily the emails are tagged with [SPAM] in the subject but they are still appearing in the inbox.

 

Has anyone else experienced this? Has a change occurred on the Vodafone systems?

 

Thanks

I've got an old (rarely used) clearnet email account that has been receiving 2 or 3 spam messages a day in the last couple of weeks.  (Not tagged with [SPAM] though.)

Yes, have had this issue for a number of weeks. Vodafone is aware (about me, as well as number of other users using clearnet, paradise emails) and currently looking into fixing it.

The issue I'm (and perhaps the others) experiencing is SPAM gone from 1 to 2 emails right up to 50-60 emails a day.

IMHO, I would much rather receive them "spam" emails, over the past few days, I've had around 20 emails marked spam which are obviously spam AND some emails from other I haven't heard from in years that arn't spam, so like it is at the moment it is letting genuine emails arrive.

I hope so! I don't like opening Outlook in the morning to find ~30 emails, with only 2 - 4 genuine ones.
