Usually I get 50 or so spam messages a day, but since 18 hours all is quiet. NO messages on the server either. What has happend? Am I the only lucky one?

I'm afraid so... 50-odd sounds about right for today...icon_frown.gif

You'd better check your online connection...icon_wink.gif

Best regards, Ralf

When the noisy children suddenly become quiet, take care May 18, 2004

I had this personal experience. When my daughter was one year old, one day no noise was coming from her corner. My harassed wife was enjoying the bliss. When after 10 minutes she went to look her up, she (the daughter) was busy dismantling her favorite book! As my horrified wife rushed to the scene, she just triumphantly held up the torn book to her with an angelic smile.
Regards,
N.Raghavan

What am I doing right? May 18, 2004

I average only about one a day, usually from some African gentleman who wants to give me $20,000,000 or so in exchange for my bank details.
My email client is Thunderbird & I am running Spybot, Popup Killer, AdAware, Free Surfer, Sygate Firewall & Norton AV.

Using Thunderbird too May 18, 2004

Anywhere normal messages do come through, also mass-mailed job-related things, but no junk still.
I had some worries with Thunderbird and the virus protection, which deletes whole folders if you are not careful.
At the moment all looks well, hope it lasts a few days.

Maybe your Internet Provideder configured some spam filter on the server. Some of mine providers use this kind of solution.

Do you miss them? :) May 18, 2004

My ISP has upgraded its anti-spam barrier earlier this year, no more spam in my inbox. I suppose one of your providers is doing the right thing.
So relax and enjoy!
