"what is going on"

I don't know - we all get spam.

"i am with orange ?"

So? They're no different to other ISPs.

Try changing your e-mail address and using it very sparingly. It's the only way to (possibly) avoid spam.

Thank you both - all the spam was "undelivered mail" which i had nothing to do with - Gandalf - my system protection rejected your suggestion - will try again soon - jarani

If receipt of spam becomes a persistant problem try using Mailwasher.

It would seem that you have a Trojan mailer as the mail is undelivered. Spyware Terminator could help clean your computer, try the link again and suggest to your computer protection that it naffs off and allows the download.

You could try ePrompter from click here it's much simpler than Mailwasher, you can select to delete all of the mail in your mail box.

Then go through and untick individually all those that you want to keep.

All of this without downloading to your PC, it's as safe as houses, so no danger of getting any nasties from spam mail.

I would also take advice of GANDALF <|:-)> re: spyware, Trojans etc.
