    I think unsubscribe is a fake link that creates even more spam and I keep blocking them but they keep on coming

    Use Thunderbird. It allows you to connect any amount of emails to it and makes it easier to Block emails
    Like Something that i did or what i've uploaded?

    I keep marking it as SPAM in my outlook and it keeps on coming like a plague from slightly different addresses. Drives me insane.

    I thought there was an external prog or something to block that shit

    sounds like you pissed off someone, use a different email. outlook is shit at detecting what is spam and what is not

    There is no support to call unfortunately. Most of them are from Forex trading sites and they are like parasites - give you unsubscribe links or report SPAM links but all fake

    Not familiar with Yahoo but I'm guessing it's similar.

    You can try to create a filter which deletes/archives/whatever the unwanted email if the emails share for example a common subject, email or body.

    Also, since you're using Yahoo I think they have an alias providor, meaning you can create "fake" emails that redirect to your main, good to know for future reference.

    Some email systems allow you to create rules if there are common wording in these spam emails or a common address or company number or telephone number at the bottom of the email you could create rules to move emails that contain certain words or sentences to your Spam Folder.

    If the filters are working, to be honest you're fucked. Outlook is shit. Switch to a new provider. Make it an option lol. Or you can make a new folder that forwards all important emails into it. And just leave inbox to be spammed.
    Please press +Rep and/or Thanks if I assisted you or was of service in any way.
