I am running Norton Security on my win 98SE Computer. It works well and I am virus free but I am getting continuous mail from one particular (unknown to me ) address, which always contains the Netsky virus.Blocking sender would just send the mail to my deleted box. Any other suggestions (other than change of e-mail address ) to rid of this continuous nuisance?

Get mailwasher which will check your mail and you can blacklist the sender; that way all mail will be deleted and will not get into your machine.

Thanks is it available on this site? How does it get deleted before arriving on my machine?

click here - mailwasher. It checks what is on the mail server, then you can view it and anything that you don't want can be deleted.

Norton gives you the information you need to block these mails in its report. Make a note of the sender / sunject and body then go to your mailbox (not outlook etc)ie: your ISP mailbox and set up the filters to delete any incomming mail the parameters you set.

Spelling sorry "sender / sunject" should be sender / subject
