Hello all! Since 18:00 today I have probably recd. 4000 mails, antivirusadmin, mailer daemon, postmaster all are pouring mails, and I do not know how to stop this. Is it happening to you also, on msn-hotmail account, yahoo seems to be ok. I have tried mailwasher, no help, then took norton spamguard, virus etc., but that stopped my system.
appreciate all advice.

Hi Jun 17, 2004

I used to get about 5 spam emails every day, a few days ago I started getting about 50 a day... I must have been put on a mailing list.

No problem with Hotmail Jun 17, 2004

I also use Hotmail and I get absolutely no spam at all in my inbox. I receive about 10 spam emails a day in my junk mail, that\'s all. I suggest you have a look at your settings for your junk filter - it really helped me! I think I have it set to medium. I have also blocked many email addresses.
