Spam all of a sudden
A year ago we moved to an area where AT&T did not cover with U-Verse. Now they are here, so we left Brighthouse, and signed up for U-Verse because we get what we want for a better price.
That is the good news.
The bad news is that since we signed up with AT&T we have started getting loads of spam: the usual junk stuff from Nigeria, and all the 'Dear One... blah blah blah' ones, plus others. For one whole year with Brighthouse we never got one single spam with the exact same (gmail) e-mail address! WHY? What do AT&T do with our e-mail addresses that opens them up as carrion for these spam vultures?
Is there anything we can do to stop the spam? We do not want to change our e-mail address. Our e-mail address isn't even a name that a computer can home in on; it's kinda cryptic. So... WHY the spam all of a sudden?
