What happens to email that is identified as potential SPAM?
In an effort to help protect its customers and their ability to use the network, Wireless Mobile Network reserves the right to not send emails through its network that have been identified as potential SPAM.

What can I do to reduce the SPAM I receive?
If you are receiving SPAM, you can respond to the sender and request that they stop. Keep in mind, however, that by so notifying the sender, you confirm that your email address is valid. There is no guarantee that the sender will stop sending you SPAM. Another possibility would be to contact the Internet service provider that is the source of the SPAM and request that they cause this activity to cease. You may also elect to purchase and install an anti-spam software solution.

If you have sent an email that has been identified by our network as potential SPAM, it will be deleted and there is no way for us to retrieve it.
