Are you getting UCE or Unsolicited Commercial Email, better known
as SPAM? Well, if you are a KPU customer with a .KPUNET.NET email
account, then maybe I can help you filter some of that out.
Here's what you do:
Go to http://www.kpunet.net/mail
In the NAME field, type in
your Kpunet.net username example: Fluffy
In the PASSWORD field, type in your email password example: Rabbit
Then enter the information by clicking on the LOGIN button
This will take you to your
internet email that you can access from any computer anywhere
in the world!
Now at the top of the window look for SpamFilter
Click on that link and your may see general opinions
(Note that if you have not set your SPAM FILTER you will be asked
to start it, click yes)
Now we are on the same page
We are going to change the Required Hits from 5.0 to 3.15 in
the box on the right
Leave everything the same and change the last column to "delete
Save changes and you should
block most of those unwanted emails.
Now go to your inbox by clicking
Don't just delete those unwanted emails just yet
Click on the blue underline link of the undesired email
At the top of the page you will see options: white list and blacklist
If you want to block the sender only then blacklist sender
If you want to block all email from the domain example: @viaraga.com
then select blacklist domain or select both sender and domain.
This should stop this SPAMMER from sending another to your email.
Note* if you block domain @kpunet.net in any of these fields,
all email from kpunet.net will be blocked.

is using KPUNET as his target domain, rest assure I and your
friends at KPU Telephone are hunting this person down like a
