    Hello everyone,


    VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK WITHIN THE QUOTED AREA!!!!!!!!!

    I have an ongoing problem with emails coming in that look like this in the body:



    The sender and subject is ALWAYS DIFFERENT each time but the body of the message is ALWAYS garbled and makes no sense... a collection of unrelated words...actually this one makes more sense than most of them..... they do seem to have XXX related matter in them alot of times.

    How can I get rid of them or what? I mean I am all protected up.... I have Adaware; and Spybot Search and Destroy; SpywareBlaster & Spywareguard....Noton Antivirus and all that good stuff..... and these always keep coming in even after I do scans and nothing is found.

    Anyone else know anything about these or have any idea about them?

    Stumped........:confused:

    None of your programs(Adaware; and Spybot Search and Destroy; SpywareBlaster & Spywareguard) will have any effect on you recievingthese e-mails.
    Are they all coming from the same source?....I mean the same mail sever?
    Mailwasher should help....you get the option to bounce the e-mails back to the source as if it has hit a non existant e-mail addy so theoretically should not be sent again.

    Hmmmm... I tried the Mailwasher and it has to be purchased to use with Hotmail incoming server... I use a Pop3 but it filters down through Hotmail as the incoming server source.... :-(
