2 or 3 times a week I get one of these

A different named recipient each time. Anyone care to explain, I have always assumed that someone is, very occasionally, using my address for spamming others.

None of the recipients are in my address book or are known to me in any way that I can remember

Your link produces a 404 error - the page cannot be found on the server.

The "click here" brings up a Screen Print that I have put on Google Drive. On my Screen anyway

Excuse me as this id the first rime I have tried putting any file on-line for sharing. What do you think I have done wrong?

"id the first rime"

Should, of course, read "is the first time". Silly me!

I'm getting both of your links ok, wee eddie, but sorry can't help you any further.

The first one can be opened in a new tab, by right clicking on it.

The link just takes me to Google sign in

I will obviously have to find a better way of posting a link

  Forum Editor 22:37 02 Jan 2018

I've emailed you with a suggestion.

Thanks FE, it's not that important. I shall think about it in the morning

This is the content of this email. The [email protected] is within these <> but the Formatting of the Forum seems to hide such content, so I have used ()

and another
