.... DO NOT FOLLOW UNFAMILIAR LINKS, DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT $200
Yes, I hate monopoly, btw. ;)

One particular email from many diffrent addresses keeps appearing

It always contains the following:
Title:Mail Delivery (failure [My Email address, but if you get it obviously it will be yours])

The message reads:
If the message will not displayed automatically,
follow the link to read the delivered message.

Received message is available at:
<My Isp, but if you get it, it will be yours>

It obviously leads to something malicous, probaly a virus. Whatever it does, it's starting to piss me off!


:grrr: :grrr: :grrr: :bangbang: :bangbang: :bangbang:

Using Thunderbird's Junk mail features, I have managed to remove them out of my inbox, but I'm still pretty annoyed that these messages are taking up space, at least until I retrieve them from my mail server. Plus my junk mail folder is pretty big now, and it's filled exclusively with them.

Final note:
NEVER OPEN UNEXPECTED ATTACHMENTS

NEVER OPEN UNEXPECTED ATTACHMENTS

NEVER OPEN UNEXPECTED ATTACHMENTS

Got it?

Rights are never important until you don't have them.

Dear Archon Wing,

calm down please....

Your advice is of course absolutely sound. I really understand your anger. I used to receive the same spam from different e-mail addresses at work (!!) with offers for some horrible frauds. I called IT department and asked that they block such addresses, but they are not almighty either...

I never open any suspicious attachments from unknown addresses. :bounce:
