    But when I held the cursor over the link the results were this aol://1223:26260/http://bjaa.50megs.com/1/index.html I thought that AOL instant kiss were AOL spam mail, when the person clicked the "link", the spammer/cracker, would get the users accounts, and passwords.? What I really want to know if I would have clicked the link what would have happenend?1223:26260<-- Is this some sort of port redirecting? I'm curious to know, but dont wanna hurt my system, Thanks for all the help I really appreciate it.

    All the link will do is redirect you to a page that looks like its from aol. They will ask for your user name and password for "verifacation". After that, they will have your info, and it will either direct you to a dead page, to aol, or to some sort of error page to throw you off of what just happened.

    Just a creative way of asking your for your password.

    Gota love Social Engineering. I tried tracing that site. . . but they are behind a few firewalls or routers or some ****. I can't connect to the last node. See.

    Thankyou RogueSpy for the Link/Picture am taking a look at it right now.

    Two ways to reduce the changes of receiving spam:

    -Give out youremail address sparingly. Create separate email accounts with a free service (your can find a free service Here ). Use these accounts for posting messages in Usenet newsgroups or buying something online (company's tend to sell your e-mail address)

    -Or you can simply just download a Filter ( www.msgto.com ) ( www.spamcop.net ).

    Anti-Spam Resources

    -If spam really irritates you consider joining "Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial Email" found Here and you will be helping a cause. Also you can see how an influential person can be in the fight against spam, www.nags.org the web site also offers tips for identifying and dealing with spam. It also offers garbage data designed to fool spammers who retrieve email addresses off web sites.

    - Wanna learn more about how to defeat spam visit www.mindworkshop.com/alchemy/nospam.html or www.junkbusters.com and anti-spam group spam.abuse.net/spam

    - Here are a few new groups for the web site above:
    alt.current-events.net-abuse, alt.spam, alt. privacy, and news admin.net-abuse.email

    Most of the spam you receive while using AOL mail is not an attempt to get your password but more porn spamming than anything. I used to get floods of instakisses, and at one time I was intent on finding the source, but I came to so many dead-ends it didn't matter. It happens to everyone on AOL, and I clicked the report button, but it doesn't really seem as if they've done anything about it, didn't really expect them to anyhow. At one time, I thought it was linked to having a public profile, because I noticed that my secondary accounts without a profile didn't seem to be getting what my main account did. Although, some have told me differently.

    My suggestion would be to set up some kind of e-mail filtering, such as for the word instakiss. It's annoying, I know. I got off of AOL not too long ago (a low point in my life). It doesn't solve the problem, but it doesn't really seem that AOL gives a crap anyway.
