Customer Question
How can we stop...

How can we stop the massive amounts of spam that come into our gmail account. We are getting a lot of dirty smut & porn which we really don't appreciate.

Technician's Assistant: How's your internet connection? Are you checking Gmail from a browser or a mail client (e.g. Outlook)?

Mail client I believe

Technician's Assistant: Are there any antivirus or firewall settings that could block you from receiving mail?

I don't know. We are quite computer illiterate.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

I can't think of anything
