Angry iGain

Anyone heard of this company?

I keep having e-mails from them, although I have unsubscribed three times!

I can put them in spam on my PC but not on the mac.

(If this should be on Techie board I'd be grateful for a move)

I'm also constantly receiving emails from this company.

Was wondering who they were.

On mac, using macmail. Click on message, top of the screen 'message > bounce'.
Repeatedly bounce back spam, eventually they get the message.

I'm also getting rubbish from iGain - funnily enough, they also know my full name - wonder where they got that from?

I'm also being bombarded with iGain spam - I think they operate a newsletter for one of the highstreet stores, and if you sign up for one list you end up on all of them. Keep bouncing back the spam and eventually they'll stop. You could also write to the companies they claim to represent and tell them what you think of their email provider....

Default iGain spam

I've started receiving unwanted iGain spam, the usual accident/injury compensation rubbish. It appears to originate from a company called "Accident Advice Helpline", operated by a company called Quindell. The founder and chairman of Quindell is Robert Terry. You can email Rob at terryr@quindell.com to let him know what you think about unsolicited mail.
