Thank you Tiscali!

..or don't delete the Spam.

I guess I'm lucky in that I only get about 20 pieces of spam a day despite having 6 email accounts, so I just use the del button. I don't get upset about it as there are far worse things to worry about. What I do get upset about, amongst other things, are scam artists, so when I got the "You have won a prize" email, I checked the source and it eminated from a Tiscali account. I forwarded it to abuse at Tiscali, and lo and behold, 3 weeks later I got a "Thank you" email in reply. They had traced the email and blocked the account.
O.K. so they will go off and open another account somewhere but at least I'm glad to see that Tiscali is taking a responsible attitude. At least we've made life a little more difficult for these fraudsters.
