Spam emails - can't stop them arriving in inbox

  Daisy22 18:08 PM 26 Nov 11

For the last week I have been receiving an email from my son's email address, but there is never a "subject" and on opening the email it is always just a link to some rubbish.

I have gmail, windows live and have tried to say that it is junk but always get the messsage it can't delete it. I've also told my son to open a new email address and have deleted his contact name from my list of contacts.

I'm now at a loose end as to how I can stop getting this junk email?

Now that you've opened these emails I would run your security programs then change your email passwords and ask your son to run all his security programs before he changes his.

If you are sure that they are coming from your son's email address (there could be a slight variation of wording?), get him to check with others on his contact list, to see if they are receiving the same as you.

I did as RDave13 suggested and haven't received any emails like this today, so I hope the problem is sorted.

Many thanks
