    Cant do much about it besides having your virus definitions updated so YOUR machine does not get infected.

    Just keep deleting them as they come in. It will go away eventually after the affected people get it off of thier machines.

    i am running "i hate spam" on my machine. All it really does is the same thing that your Outlook filters will do for you, but with an easier to use interface. You still get the emails that you don't want.....they just get moved to a another folder. You still have to go through the folder (at least i do) to make sure nothing went to that folder that wasn't supposed to.... (i.e. an email from someone that you know that included the wrong "keywords" like....boat for SALE).


    you really should have some kind of virus protection on your machine. You can obtain viruses from not only email attachments, but from just viewing infected pages of a website. For around $30 - $40 for is a good investment.

    I wouldn't press any buttons other than DELETE and Empty Trash. I believe if you notify your mail server that an email is spam or you respond to a link to be removed from the sender's list, you have just confirmed that your address is valid and you will get a whole lot more spam.
    I still don't see why it is necessary for these people to do these things.
    Too bad there wasn't some way of tracing this stuff back to the person or persons that do this, and by law enable us to send an electronic bullet back to their computer to the point it explodes!
