Spam in my inbox

Is it just me or is anyone else getting loads of junk e mail  in their inbox instead of it being redirected to their spam folder? It has become terrible recently!

Re: Spam in my inbox

Me too.  Today I received about 5 that were so obvious, including Chinese symbols and messages re bitcoin.  

I am going to try and contact BT to see if there's an issue with their filters.  I think there must be but it has got so much worse recently.

Even more annoying when attempting to use * to block multiple spam mails all ending in "onmicrosoft.com" the filter refused to accept  * or ** such as "**@**onmicrosoft.com" 

Is the universally accepted symbol * to substitute a letter/symbol not recognised by BT?

Re: Spam in my inbox

If you really have no spam then maybe you could help the rest of us to figure out why we have and how to avoid it? I've had 10 spam emails land in my inbox today. I mark and block them all, but every day there are more than the day before. It's getting very annoying. It also can be scary if I wake up to things on my phone where I can't immediately tell if they're real or not, because I can't see the sender's actual email address there (... is there a way to see it  - iPhone 12??).

@Sue036  I suspect the reason I don't get any spam is because I don't use social media and I am very careful about divulging my email address.

Same here.
