Can anyone explain this please? I get on average 80 spam emails perday on my ntlworld account, all of them ofering the usual viagra etc, recently I am getting 5 emails a day with viruses attached. Norton 2004 detects it and I delete it and then empty the deleted folder. Within 2 minutes the same email with virus is back again. after deleting this one it usually doesn't come back-what gives?
The emails could be sent from a cookie stored on your computer. It seems strange that the emails re-appear within minutes of deletion which points towards some sort of spyware on the computer or you are well unlucky.
I have no spyware on my computer - run spyware blaster and spybot - fully updated - and get exactly the same with my ntlworld email address.
I don't think it is too easy to change with ntl, so I ma just waiting until we get broadband when I will get a new email address, and will put 3 numbers after my name which seems to stop spammers guessing your address.
I use mailwasher, and it really annoys me how much mail I get delivered in my ntl account which is not even addressed to me!
