Default OT: Spam

I'm a kinda low key computer guy,get I guess a resonable amount of spam that I delete but this morning it has been crazy an email with a download about one a minute. I have never had as much spam like this. Has AOL changed somethhing?

Don't open and keep deleting them.
First thing I look for is the file size. Anything over 5K I delete unless I am expecting something from someone I know.
A virus file is usually greater than 5 k.

I'm getting tons of "Message Undeliverable" messages that indicate I'm sending out emails to bad addresses, but I'm not sending anything out. Looks like someone's spoofing my email address to spam other people.

Can't wait for the National "No E-mail List" to go with the "No Call List".....

I'm getting tons of emails with biiiigggpppeennusss, or biigginnsss as the subject. (Not neccessary those exact subject names, but you get the point, and they are all sex related chit). How do I prevent from recieving these? Seem to get at least 2 a day for the last several months. I never open them, just delete.
