My cousin is on NTL broadband I think it's the 128 version, everytime she checks her e-mail she has about 600 messages, it's not a virus as she has plenty of protection it is just spam, she doesn't buy anything on the web, and doesn't put her e-mail address on anything on the web how do you think people are getting hold of her address

I know there is stuff out there to get rif of it - - but why does it just come to my ntl account; I have several others - tiscali, btopenworld - - and get none there.

A 'friend' probably put the email address in every spammers box they could find

Yeah only takes once to get in the spamming system and then its included in another mailing list and is passed round. I now have a email address for just close friends and companies I really trust and one that I use for other sign up and whatever, and if it gets in a spammers mailing list I just get rid of it and make up another address.
