Got home yesterday and checked my email and I had over 4000 emails and just about all of them were that dang "My Doom" virus :evil: I would love to get my hands on just one of those guys who writes those things. :twisted:

So if you emailed me since Monday and I didn't respond it's most likely because it got deleted with the other message. Send it again if it's still important to you. Sorry :(

Not your fault Bro, don't sweat the small stuff ! Ya, I agree, the people who write those programs should be hung. All that talent going to waste,

You know its really gotten out of control. A really great thing going bad. I get 2500 to 4000 emails every day. most all are spam and junk.

What doesn't the president do something about that. For get telemarketers. There just making a living and if they take your time they are giving the same time.

The porn....Viagra, drugs, this sucks. I use a spam blocker and it gets 75 % of the crap. They have to outlaw open relays and really enforce it.

Email filtering software is well worth the money. The filter that I use through my ISP (and it is free) catches nearly everything that I don't want to see, and hasn't grabbed anything that wasn't spam.

And the price is right. Free.

i have bud that got so much of that email virius garbage, that it filled his in box and kicked real email back to sender.

i recently switched to earthlink, since the switch, i get maybe 3 scam emails per week. down from about 20 per day. i got none of the recent virius ones.

My roadrunner filtered out the mydoom virus one. The latest scam that I keep getting hit with is the one from Nigeria about you give me money to allow me to get my money into the US and I give you a percentage. It is absolutely amazing how many people fall for this.

my earthlink account email is getting about 3 spams a day now. I may change the email addy to stop the spam if it gets worse.

my Yahoo email account that I use for various bbs has gone from 3-4 a day to 30-40 a day of pure junk.

I am with you guys... i would string these folks that write viscous virus / worm programs up to a tree, gut them, then shoot them.

We use US Internet to filter all our mail - average 1800 spam and virus infected emails per day. We also check each email for viruses three times by differing methods before delivery. Seems like a lot of extra work and expense just to keep 12 year olds in check.
Makes life interesting in a way though.

I can't believe I am the only one to catch this:

LaMonster this is not the correct place to post an email issue - that should be posted in the Off Topic area :!:

This area is reserved for Wing Related information only :wink:

I spent every day from 6-8 doing email. I use Giants filter but still get through. My wife and I are involved in ecommereace so my emails are all over the place on the net. Ordb.org is a big help in the fight against spam mail. 100.s of isps use there blocklist.

I hate to say it but we need stiff and enforcable puniashments for offenders and providors of open relay mail servers. I used to be one of them. Years ago. Used to send out 500,00 emails a day. Some make a lot of money doing this.

I stopped doing it for a few reasons. The nasty letters I would get, and ketting kicked off many isps and the fact I derived few real sales due to the efforts.

10 years ago it was a new thing. The term spam was just coined. Now it out of control and very expliciate stuff.
