Can anyone please advise how to add unwanted emails in Spark webmail to a Spam blacklist? 


When I try to "Blacklist Sender", I get the message "You exceeded the maximum number of items on your blacklist. Please delete some addresses first". 


This is the first time I have attempted this in the new Spark portal and have no idea where to find my list of "blacklist addresses". 


I am not able to find any mention of how to do this in their "help" section.  Can anyone enlighten me, please?

with the way spammers operate, it probably isnt worth the effort.
Unless you have one email continually sending you spam .


Putting every spam into a blacklist at that level, you wont achieve much.

Doesn't Spark have any kind of email rules filter like gmail does? You ought to be able to set up your own filter to exclude groups of emails with wild card matches. For example, some stuff from a dating site called Harmony I never visited started leaking through the spam filter. The individual 'hot dates' had different email headers but they all had Harmony in the sender name so I just matched to that and haven't been bothered since. Of course I might have a problem if I ever got something about my Harmony universal remote, so such matches have to be done with a little thought.
