I've always gotten tons of spam emails for the old blog/site - I think because it's so out of date, but I have recently been inundated with email asking me to verify my comments on my new blog, which are obviously spam. I THINK the spam/ham is being caught in time because when I go to "SPAM IT", the comment seems to not be in my "good comment" folder in my dashboard.
Maybe there is a setting I've messed up where I've asked for Spam comments to be sent to me? I don't think I can stop the spam but can I stop receiving emails about it? I get about 12-30 emails a day -- confusing because some of the comments are good, so I have to look at each email.
I've seen other topics about this but the answers are too confusing to me-- I just need a very simple, step-by-step, newbie instruction for how I might stop this. Or at lest stop receiving the emails about it.
