blocking my grandson

  funnybone 22:51 09 Apr 2007

my grandson is autistic and he has started sending abusive emails to his ex girlfriend who is very upset. I dont know his password and his mum cannot get into his hotmail on her computer, can it be done so he cannot send anymore. she has switched it off for now. any ideas?

is he using web mail or an e mail client to do this?

and of interest, how old is he?

I am sure someone will come up with a parental control thingi that can be put on the computer

Several methods availble,but im afraid its normally bought software and configure the pc.

For starters,you could try and block hotmail by going into internet explorer/Tools/internet options/privacy/restricted sites/click sites/now add or .uk this should block access to this but there are ways around this.

Something that may help you:

If he has msn and auto login:

Double click the msn icon and hopefully it will auto sign in,then File goto my email inbox.

The ex-girlfriend can add his email address to her 'blocked senders' list

In Outlook Express > Open an email from him > Click on 'Message' at the top of screen to get the drop down menu > Click on 'Block Sender'

Or if it is Webmail hotmail:
Options > Mail > Junk e-mail Protection > Blocked Senders, and add his email address to list

You could find out his password using Snadboy from
click here then change it!
But it's then possible he could set up a new account.
