    Question Getting e-mail from ???

    Hi folks,

    I'm recieving everyday e-mail from everytime something else. I write something else because the sender has no name, it's name is someting like 'dsdfsqdgs' and the name changes everytime. I don't think that blocking everytime a sender like this will help.
    For the moment, I cleaned my computer hoping it had something to do with some kind of virus... but i have my doubts.
    Does anybody has any idea what this could be?

    Thx,

    LB

    I think it's spam... I have the same problem. There are filters that filter those things, but there's always something that will pass those filters... Everyone hates it.

    some ISP's also offer to kill spam or allow you to manage spam on their end. once again, it sometimes gets through, but you can buy an anti-spam setup from most isp's for like 20 bucks a year, which is only about 1.70 a month, so buy the medium popcorn instead of the large when you go to the movies, and rid yourself of spam before it even hits your computer.

    i\'m starting to think that i\'m bound to always be the first guy on the second page of the thread.

    Are you using Hotmail or yahoo or another free mail? Those are the WORST for SPAM. But the 3rd party filters are your best bet!
