I have an email address that is getting over 1000 spam emails per day.

Is it worth simply turning off my email address for a few weeks, and then turning it back on?

Do spammers pay any attention to "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)" messages?

Thanks
Mark

Do spammers pay any attention to "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)" messages?

In most cases, no. They simply obtain a list of emails and use some mass emailing software to blast out to all emails in the list, irrespective of whether they get any delivery failure/bounce reports or not. Its simply not worth the time to clean their lists..

Sysmantec/ Norton provide a tool for getting rid of SPAM and there are a number of other programs out there that will do it for you.

I have tried the following tactics and it still seems spam gets through:
1. individually going through every email and unsubscribe - very time consuming
2. just deleting the email without reading it
3. in some cases - just labeling it as spam

your post was correct-- there is no way to absolutely block spam some people just don't want to hear that.
No idea shouldn't be in IT
