in that case it is quite likely that someone who has your e mail addy in their pc has become infected and is mailing out as you and as your address is correct it will come back to you, i used to get a hundred a day recently but it does go away in time.

I'm with Orange and this happens from time to time. You find that you get garbage letters before the @ and your correct user name. The first time it lasted for months, the last time just for a couple of days. I wish Orange would find a way to stop this.

You can use ePrompter click here can delete all your unwanted e-mails before they get to your normal e-mail provider.Just delete the ones that you dont want and the rest you will be able to open on your normal e-mail account.I think it will take up to 8 or 16 different email addresses.
