Unwanted e-mails!

  tony-guitar 21:14 18 Dec 2004

My wife may get 3-4 e-mails a day that never even have her name in it.The e-mail address is not hers but she gets them anyway. Do any of you good people out there know and why this happens and is there any way to stop them? Any help is appreciated.They are not necessarily perverse/distasteful etc but annoying just the same.Thanks

Thanks for your suggestion VoG. Does this program have to be downloaded individually( wife's account) or if i do it, does every account automatically have access to it, do you know?

If you are working on Outlook Express go into message rules and set up so that anything that is not adressed to your wife specifically is deleted at the server. This has worked for me and has deleted about 95 percent of spam.
