Not one spam e-mails over the festive season.

So far none over Xmas or the new year. Why cant it be like that all of the time.

There must be a reason for it. Any ideas.

Just as expected they have started coming back again.

It seems like they take time off sending spam emails at holiday times.

Hi govanix , hope you had a good xmas , just for fun if you want to see how quick you can get hit by junk mail or a spam bot then make a new email address and DONT use it. Check it every so often and you will be surprised how quick something finds its way in their. BTW I use thunderbird for emails.

I have 6 email address for different reasons but usually only use one for buying from the internet. That is the one that gets the spam. Does not matter if I blacklist them or not they still come in.

Some of course have click here to be removed from mailing list but hesitant to use that just in case i get hacked.

Thank you for the Xmas message.It was one I would like to forget.But they cant all be good i suppose.
