So there is someone in England that has a similar email to me. Occasionally I get emails intended for him. Now he has signed up at Dominos.

 

The problem is I get daily at least marketing emails from them. Yes, they go to spam, but still annoying. 

 

Ok So just unsubscribe then. Nope can't. Dominoes seem to block all attempts to access anything on their domain. Don't know if it's just me or anyone in NZ.

 

Unsubscibe link, and even the main dominos.co.uk page just throw an access denied error page for me.

 

Tried opening it in a private window. Doesn't work. Tried changing my location on my browser. Doesn't work. Try contacting via facebook. They don't have a dominos UK page. 

 

The only way I can think of is a VPN. But don't really want to pay for that just to unsubscribe from some spam. 

 

Any other ideas?

VPN may be the only option - I've had to do this myself a few times.

 

Fortunately, "TunnelBear" has a free level, so whilst you'd need to sign up, it won't actually cost you anything....

Can you set up a filter to automatically delete anything from that sender?

You could complain to the ICO, which will hopefully result in Dominos actually providing a functioning unsubscribe link. Who knows how long it'll take though...

There are plenty of free VPN options out there if you're after something straightforward like this - Opera browser has one, or take a look at these options.

Yeah when I was there last year I looked at one of their menus and thought it was pricey compared to NZ.

I have a similar issue with a company in Canada. They IP block addresses outside of Canada.

Guys, seriously?

 

You will still get an unsolicited email address (sometimes it's phishing and not from the suspected sender at all) jammed into the spam filter, won't you?

@Tinkerisk These are not phishing emails to start with

I get emails from a mechanic in the UK similar email address to mine I canceled his MOT last week

I have told them a number of times that I am located in New Zealand

Thanks for the ideas everyone! Someone with a UK VPN has kindly offered to try on my behalf to unsubscribe. If that doesn't work I will sign up for a VPN myself. Didn't realise there were free VPN offers out there.
