Well, i think you should just maby close the current account and get a kids emailing system. On the net there are tones of site offering child email services. These services carefully screen all mail preventing any obseen materials. I dont know of any at the moment but have a look around.

Dennisthemenace I think your story is starting to fall apart here. This leads me to believe that youíre some lame script kiddy trying to learn how to mail bomb people. If thatís not the case why haven't you just closed down you sons account and set him up with a crappy hotmail account? This problem isn't that complicated if you can't solve it on your own maybe you should start questioning your parenting skills. Sorry if that seems a little harsh.
Its not software piracy. Iím just making multiple off site backups.

check that the email account...e.g hotmail... hasn't got a share with third party box...& if they do make sure that it isn't ticked

why put them on a mail list anyway (as you sad you dont want to mail bomb, you want to put them on mass mailing lists....) if its some porno place... i doubt they even check those mailboxes, due to reasons such as this.

Where do you have your e-mail account? Hotmail, iName etc? If you have it at hotmail, just don't use it for 30 days, the account will be deleted and create another one with a similiar email adress. Revenge is out of the question, your not getting any mass mail prog's or URL's. Forget it, just create a new e-mail adress for your son.

I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. If your child is receiving Porn, you as a parent, have every right to be pissed. There are alternatives to "Revenge". First, contact your ISP and advise them what's going on, most large ISP's are quite willing to help stop this sort of thing. Second, report the problem to other agencies such as:Mail Abuse Prevention System or NATSMA or Abuse.net.
More information on 'positive' things you can do can be found Here
I hope this info helps you out, don't go on a 'revenge' mission, it will only get you in deeper.

I am sure the child has got into porn sites and posted his email in places on them. People 'usually' don't just automaticly recieve X`treme amounts of porn out of the blue. As far as your son being old enough for his own Email... ...that is up to you.

im not gonna get into the whole mass mailer part, but unless you KNOW for sure there is sombody behind that email address i would guess that you are mass mailing a bot. there is probably nobody behind that address, and the reason your son is getting tons of spam is because you reply'd to the address(telling the box that it was active), so it added the address to its "send everything under the sun" list.
There are 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary, and those who dont.
