Hi Jonny

After a quick google,it looks like spammers at work and trying to use your email addy to relay there messages.

thanks for that, i am not getting any messages about returned mail etc which would be usual, if AVG as it does keeps scanning it for mail where do you think my prob might lie? i have adaware up to date spybot up to dat spyware blaster up to date defender up to date along with super antispyware and windows advanced care if i have a prob how might it have got through that lot?

Probably something simple like your Email addy has been sold on by some agency/spammer and just trying to use your email to send mutiple emails to your address book.Though it looks like you protection is doing its job.

Upshot is if this persist,is to try and block them or change your email addy.

my thaks for the interest AVG does actually give me the ip address ( which is static ) i did not want to post it as i might be getting another party in trouble, if i would not be then i am quite happy to publish the static ip address which may help further
