For weeks now my OE inbox has been flooded with one particularly nasty e-mail. It claims to originate from my ISP and to have found a virus in a sent message. The e-mail itself contains loads of hyperlinks, presumably to lots of yummy actual viruses. I started off by creating rules in OE which sent them straight to my delete folder but the sheer volume of them made me want to become a bit more proactive, so I installed 'Mailwasher' and began bouncing them all, which acheived absolutely nothing, I`m still getting them by the drove and it`s making me very, very, angry. The thing is that they all come from the same source and I have the I.D. number in front of me as I write. Does anyone know of anything practical I can do to get this joker off my case? or do I have to meekly sit here hitting delete half a million times a day for the rest of my natural? All suggestions gratefully received, the nastier the better. Love and peace, Charlie.
I tend to agree with Hoverman, I had exactly the same problem with hotmail, no matter what I tried every day I was receiving 75-100 junk e-mail offering everything and anything, in the end I gave up and ditched the address, a pain letting people know the new address but it cured the problem (for now)...alB
Surely though having the source IP address must give me some access to something? can I not discover his/her physical location, provider or the like in order to complain. What other information does this number give me access to?
alB as I said in the post before yours, changing address is not an option for me as this stuff is coming via my domain and besides aint that just running away from a problem? there has to be an alternative, I suppose nukin` him is out of the question (",)
