    I get a dozen or so emails a day from suspect sources and research at symantec lead me to the W32.netsky worm - which I ran the removal tool, I dont have the worm - but I cant stop people sending me emails with the worm - is there a way to configure my mail provider to block or accept emails with this worm - i use incredimail and have checked the options which seem limited. I have configured my firewall and nortons as best as i can - yet I still get constant bombardment of these emails...

    heres hoping heather :rolleyes:

    Really the olny way at this point would be the change addresses and its sending out spoofed addresses in it so your attempts to block certain ones will fail.
