Hello community. In the last ~2 weeks, I’ve been getting a ton of spam sent to my Rogers mailbox…anywhere from 5-10 per day. Prior to these last 2 weeks, I wasn’t getting any spam at all. Does anyone know if Rogers changed their spam filtering settings recently? And no, I haven’t changed anything on my end nor did I subscribe to anything using my email address 🙂

@toolcubed : I assume you're talking about Webmail? I have not seen an increase in spam in my Rogers/Yahoo e-mail. I have not seen any spam go into my inbox there in several years. Their filter has become very good. I sometimes get suspected spam going into my spam folder on Webmail. Sometimes it's real spam, sometimes its a "real" e-mail from a new business I've just dealt with. I probably see about 2 of these in total per month. When I use Outlook client on my computer, I never see spam because any spam stays in Webmail (spam folder) or is filtered before getting to Webmail. (We have 5 e-mail addresses at Rogers/Yahoo for various purposes)
@Don_Ca : You're right about Gmail. I have never seen any spam there, although that e-mail is mainly a backup for me.
When you go into Webmail (which you should be doing once in a while to check for real e-mail in the spam folder) do you open the spam e-mail in your inbox and click the "spam" button at the top? This helps Rogers/Yahoo with their algorithms and moves that e-mail from the inbox to spam, so it shouldn't be seen in Outlook.
I have also seen a large number of spam to two of my rogers accounts. Same as others. 5-10 per day now. Something definitely changed a month or two ago. They may all be from the same sender. Just randomly generated it seems. Marking them as SPAM does NOTHING! I'm pretty close to getting rid of these two email accounts for good which was the last thing keeping me on Rogers Internet...
Have you ever found an answer to this? I've been using Rogers/Yahoo for 15 years and i have *never* seen spam like this. And it's on both my @rogers (main) account and my @ yahoo.ca account. I mark each one as spam without opening, but they are relentless and always from a different 'sender' so flagging them does nothing.
I haven't used these email addresses for anything funky - i have throwaways for that. Something absolutely changed. I, too, am about ready to delete these email addresses. I saw a response above saying there is a general increase in spam, but nothing is getting through the gmail filters. It's a Rogers/Yahoo problem.
This is today alone, so far. There will be the same amount again by this evening.
Stopping spam is like attempting to hit a moving target. While each report does help us to shut those examples down, spammers are constantly evolving their tactics to sneak past our guards. Please continue to report spam as it comes in.
As a possible workaround, I would recommend having a secondary email address that you only use to sign up for services online while keeping your personal and professional emails separate. You risk inviting more spam everytime you enter your email address into a website, app or service.
I have 15 new spam emails today in my rogers account. 14 different ones yesterday. At least 10 every other day for the last month or so. I have blocked senders, deleted, flagged as spam, moved to junk. Nothing is working. Very, very, frustrating. Nothing in either of my gmail accounts. Surely Rogers can figure this out?
Thanks for posting your issue via the Rogers Community! We hope you like it here. 🙂
Receiving unsolicited emails can surely be a nuisance. I've had to deal with this myself and although it's usually manageable, there are days where the spam emails are relentless! Your best bet is to continue flagging these emails as 'spam' in your inbox as they come in.
Please also check out this Community Knowledge Base article on Email Spamming to get more info on how to report any fraudulent-based emails to the appropriate teams. This will help in our efforts to combat these types of messages from continuing to be sent. As always, please remember to never click on any links within an email if it looks sketchy or is coming from a non-trustworthy source.
Thanks and have a nice day!
I'm lucky that I don't get very much spam. Perhaps a couple of e-mails per month and they almost end up in my Rogers/Yahoo spam folder. I think I've seen one get through to my Outlook e-mail client in the last couple of years.
The ones that end up in my Rogers/Yahoo spam folder are almost always associated with a few of my contacts that had their e-mails hacked. I'm guessing Rogers/Yahoo filter is aware of those.
I use a separate e-mail address dedicated to web purchases, etc.
