Spam

I have a phenomenal increase in the amount of spam appearing in my spam folder, mostly undeliverable mail returned to sender, like up from 3 a week to two hundred a day.

As they are going straight to my spam folder I am not too bothered, but anybody have a clue as to why?

Have I compromised my account in some way, or has a new server opened up?

Sorry, can't help but although I'm no great fan of BT, but they do seem to filter out most of my spam before it gets to me.

I'm with Orange, but my e-mail account is Yahoo.

If it is 'undeliverable mail - return to sender' it would seem to indicate that you are the sender it is being returned to. Time to do all the scanning for trojans etc that is so often recommended in this forum.

Done full scans with avg and spybot.

Nothing found apart from the odd tracking cookie (deleted!).

Thanks. I think you're probably right.

Funnily enough, so far my g-mail account is pretty clear!
