Unwanted spam

Over the last few days, I have been inundated with emails trying to sell me pills which will add 3inches to a part of my anatomy!
How do they get my email address? (I can't remember having any complaints!)
I note that the email has also been copied to other Rogers at ntlworld.

No cure for spam as yet.Whatever programme you download and use, make sure that you set it up right.This will give you a better chance in reducing your spam intake. When a spammer sends out their rubbish, it is intended for anyone that fits their sending word pattern, not just a particular person initially.If you respond to their email,you will then open a flood gate to your mailbox.
