Hiya

I've moved this to Web and Email for more response :)

I've also edited out the emails in the above, as they may get plenty of Spam otherwise ;)

Are you using AOL or Outlook Express to read emails? Also, can anyone else read the emails that are being sent?

It looks like that they're sending an email by forwarding it on. Is there an attachment, and, I can't believe I didn't ask this, but have you scanned it for viruses?

If it is Outlook Express, see if this helps:

Tools | Options | Security tab. Untick do not allow attachments to be saved, apply and Ok.

Then, close OE down, re-open it and see if that's okay.

Regards

eddie

Ah, just seen this part:

="--------MailBlocks_8C7A47EDA8593FF_508_13F64_FWM-R37.

Looks like it may be AOL, and this is what it is:

http://www.infoworld.com/article/04/08/04/HNaolmailblocks_1.html

Mailblocks' technology works by "whitelisting," or approving, everyone in a user's address book as a legitimate e-mail sender, and challenging any unknown senders. When a user receives an e-mail from an unknown sender, the service holds the mail and sends back an automatically generated message, asking the sender to type in the seven-digit code that they see on the screen. Once the sender enters the code, the message is delivered to the recipient and that sender will not be challenged again. The technology aims to defeat mass-mailer spam and worms generated by computers.
Did you get the above option?

Sometimes when I receive emails from people, they contain an extra email that has to be doubleclicked to be opened. Is there an envelope icon that needs to be doubleclicked to open the main email itself?

As for the picture, is this as an attachment, or embedded in the email?

Do you have Norton protection?
