I'm pretty much certain the first one is a virus if it has an attachment. These kinds of email have been going round a lot lately

Doesn't your provider give you the option of blocking that email adress from your inbox? Only other thing to try is find the abuse adress of planet internet, the dutch guys provider. It'll most likely be [email protected]. Anyway, GL on getting rid of the spammers...

Use pop amil for personal email, and use hotmail or something similar for public, advertisement, spam email. Hotmail has a pretty good block/filter option for that. Just don't make a name that is easily listable (like my tech-illiterate gf who uses [email protected] ).

For the last month or two I've been using a piece of software called SpamNet, which is basically a free Outlook plug in you can download from here:

http://www.cloudmark.com/

'Just like Napster allowed us to share our favorite music, Cloudmark SpamNet allows us to share the spam we receive. Individually this reported spam isn't very powerful, but the collective reports of millions of email users networked together blocks virtually all spam on the Internet.'

It seems to filter out a vast quantity of the spam I recieve (416 messages so far ), so if your an Outlook user it might be worth a look.

I always use my real account for signing up for stuff. I never get any spam either.

I never understood how people get so much.
