Hi guys,

Smee again,

After years of being spam free (& pretty much malware & bug free) I have started to get Spam – I think, on one of my accounts (I have 8 addresses with 4 email providers, running through Thunderbird).

I’ve had about 20 in a fortnight. They are all pretty similar & I’m guessing that lots of other people are getting the same things,,,,

As far as I can tell, they are not actually addressed to my account/s, so I can’t see which address is being used.

I filtered the first 2 or 3, but they all have different ‘From’, ‘Subject’, ‘message’ words etc so are difficult / impossible to filter.

Any ideas how to stop these please ?
cheers

I have been getting quite a few on my MSN account lately and none on the others.

No way of removing them permenantly as they just use another e-mail address to send them.
