Holy Moley, some of you need to chill out or put more fiber in your diets. Unwanted or unsolicited email is one of the downsides of the technology.   

You can stop some of it some of the time.  Still less intrusive than unwanted phone calls.

Between family, friends, business etc.  I get lots of unnecessary emails.  If I see an email from a sender I don't know or don't want, I delete unopened.  Try that.  all email programs have delete. cheers...mel
