I have recieved an email today confirming an order I have not placed. It states its an automated email so no links or anything. When I checked the email address it was not addressed to me but to another msn.com account . can anyone explain how it came to me and what I should do about it?

Possibly spam. Delete and ignore.

Like Jackoms said probably 99% spam.But just to be in the safe side ,check your bank accounts make sure that there are no entries in there that you dont know about,

Your address - probably along with hundreds of other [email protected] addresses - is in the "bcc" list so that you can't see it. I'd guess the idea is to get people to reply saying they've recived it in error then you get inundated with spam.

FYI there is a new Windows mail client click here that is compatible with msn/hotmail accounts and has much better junk mail filters.
