In spite of living in England and in spite of using Mailwasher, a lot of my daily deluge of spam is now in German!!

Is this the latest phenomena or have the Germans just entered the spam market?

Nope, i'm getting a lot of cyrrilic (is that correct?) lettering 5 or 6 times a day and can only assume it's russian or east european in origin!

No spam what so ever. Other than mailings I've subscribed to.

To answer your Question, I bought a tin of "Stinky French Garlic" Spam the other day. Didn't see any German ones though.

Up until about 6 months ago I hardly ever had a any spam, but I am now receiving about 30

a day. I think I may have entered my Email address on some survey or other. I should have known better.

I'm partial to sauerkraut. Does that count?

I get the same returns - clearly e-mails are being forward from my system in some way (none of mine) and being sent back.

However, I just delete them. All virus and antispyware checks come up clean.

I've also had a fair number of spam e-mails in other languages.

It all gets delivered by one source, Tiscali.

I still extensively use a worldonline.co.uk e-mail address.
