strange emails

  Tabatha 15:20 06 Mar 2004


For a few days now I have been getting very strange emails from unknown sources, with things such as "you're no good" or "not today" etc., in the subject line - nothing else.

I have an Anti-Norton Virus protection and have noticed as well that many many emails addressed to me, are also infected and are now sitting in the Quarantine Department, as they cannot be repaired. What does all this mean?...

Today I had an email from someone saying "I don't like you".......I'm getting a bit worried over all this...

Any help would be appreciated. And what do I now do with my quaratined infected files...

Anything in quarantine can be deleted - most likely they are a variant of a virus.

Some may also be spam - try mailwasher from to filter it.

delete them if you have the facility at least norton is catching all the virus for you.

its free and easy to use and you don't even have to open your mail program, so if you see any emails you don't recognize,DELETE THEM, then you are not donwloading any viruses.

Loads of what you are getting are doing the rounds at the moment!

Thanks everyone. Just downloaded Mailwasher, and have already deleted two 'unwanteds' - one of them bad mouthing me again, the other asking if I wanted Viagra!!!! Don't they recognise the email address as being a Woman???

Thanks again, don't know what I would do without you lot.
