    I have been also been under an apparent email attack .
    The quantity may be related to an infection with the welchia worm.
    The worm has now been removed with the aid of
    My slow dial up (my Cu pots line is 10 miles long) cant cope with
    loading 4000 emails to erase.
  2. I've finally (after a decade) been forced to munge my e-mail address.
    8-( Like Win, I've gotten about 10,000 copies of that virus, each
    about 140-160K (1.5G of spam) over about the last week.

    You might want to try mailwasher for deleting all that crud at the
    server. It's free/cheap depending on the version. Unfortunately it
    won't automatically delete without clicking so I can't use it to keep
    my mailbox from overflowing when I'm out of town. Even without
    spending an hour or two setting up filters to catch all the variations
    of Swen subject/from lines, you can easily sort by size and delete
    anything with a size in the range it hits.

    Best regards,

    Same here .

    Penalty for virus writers - ECT from a pole pig. With dru sponges .


  4. Memorize or write down. I do not use addressbooks. Did not bother to
    in the past; now I feel justified since the most prevalent e-mail viruses
    use them.
    If you mean electroconvulsive therapy, I think that's not cruel enough
    since one normally loses consciousness from that. The worst effects are
    physical injury from the convulsions and erasing of short-term memory.
