    Not really, because I don't have (and don't want) access to your TenForums account. For the time being, at least, just delete the image.

    EDIT : I've updated my response to indicate the image was deleted

    This has been my mail for years before the Outlook stuffs. I am not surprised it is not Outlook. So, it is Windows Mail. It is working well except as I said, I cannot get to the option of Spam filtering. I can however, individually right click on the spam and mark it SPAM. But I do not know if it automatically will put subsequent mail from same senders to SPAM folder. And that's what I want to accomplish.

    I tried but failed to delete it.

    Which is now the problem, It's old, outdated, no longer supported by Microsoft and should never have been included in later Windows versions. It was perfunctorily modified (with loss of same facilities) over time, but just pure plain laziness on Microsoft's part to remove it.

    Some users can put up with it, but when it comes to the need for creative email management (e.g. specific filters) it just doesn't cut the mustard.

    I tried to remove the pic but I failed to. I edited the pic in my Picture folder and block off the addresses and attached the edited pic, and I now have two pics: one edited (mail addresses blurred off) and another(the original), not edited with the mail addresses not blurred out. I do not know how to delete the original pic.

    Never post your Email Addresses as in post #8 as they will farmed by bots and then spammed.

    Delete your image attachments from your tenforums account, however, the damage as already been done.

    10 Forums Settings > Miscellaneous > Attachments > tick and delete.

    Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail have the facility to mark Emails as Spam. This will eventually work after some months.

    Sign on using the Webmail method via your Web Browser.

    The Windows 8.1/10/11 Mail App is current, indeed the last update was about a week ago. Whilst you can move Email to a Spam folder I'm pretty sure there is no learning filter.

    "I cannot get to the option of Spam filtering"

    Hence signing on directly with the Webmail method, each account, where there is definitely learning Spam filters. You need to do this for a while and eventually it will work automatically.

    I tried but failed to delete the pic attachment with mail addresses. But somehow, (I did not do it), the post disappeared (deleted). Thanks to whomever did it.
