Its loads of emails I have not signed up for mostly from USA, I have asked them to inactive me but that is either ignored or returned as email could not be forwarded, also some if the emails are highly inappropriate.

Should read unsubscribe.

Thank you and I am sorry to hear about this situation! It seems like your email address has been leaked to 3rd parties that are sending you SPAM. This can happen if you use your email on websites that then sell them to other "marketing" sites, which is frustrating. However, the only real solution to this, if it gets out of hand like in your case, is to create a new email address. The reason simply is that most of these SPAMMERS will ignore your opt-out requests and will just keep on sending you SPAM.

Thank you

I have to thank you. Do you need help with setting up a new email?

Do you need any more help with setting up a new email?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I would rather keep my old email, is this possible?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I can set up a new mail, can't remember how to do that, I am not tech savvy.

Yes, but if you keep your old email, that SPAM won´t stop, unfortunately, as you cannot control what others are sending to you. Starting with a fresh email that you only share with your friends will eliminate that problem. Which email provider are you using? Gmail? Yahoo? Or something else?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
gmail, I can create a new email address, how do I delete old email address?

Thank you. Please follow this video:

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I have followed the link watched numerous videos but as yet nothing telling me how to delete my current email address.

You cannot really delete your current email address, just exchange it for a new one and abandon the old one. That is the same effect and nothing more is really needed.
