    Wasn't long. Got my first piece of AOL junk mail today. Wanted to sell me something to get rid of spyware in email. I opened it, clicked unsubscribe (might as well TRY even if I believe it won't work), then deleted it. Any future ones like this I will simply delete without opening.
    A year or two with Verizon mail without this and now that Verizon acquires AOL mail I start getting junk mail offers. And I do not think I will update my AOL setting, read all the FAQs and waste more of my time. Just let it go away and use my gmail or mail.aol.com instead of the Verizon mail or whatever it is that wants me to keep updating everything. Get confused with all the different things.

    My advice would be to not open junk mail, whatever email client you use. And definately do not
    click on any links in a mail. Just delete them. If it looks like it's from a friend, they'll get back to you
    again if they need to. You can also contact them to make sure that their email was genuine.

    I open junk email to see the "sender" so I can add to my block list.

    For some reason in Juno, I get lots of things from India. I just wish Juno allowed more than 500 blocks. Every so often I have to go in and clean the older blocks out so I have room to add more. Yahoo upped the block option from 500 to 1000 which is better.

    gmail is pretty good at recognizing spam. I don't get much there and after I click delete forever without opening it, I don't seem to get any repeats.
