Subject: RE: BS: Spam and Porn - how to get rid of it?
John, this article may be of interest to you. It seem's spammers are now trying to "hijack" people's computers.
I haven't worked out where most of my spam comes from but most of it goes to an email address, email@example.com that I hardly ever use for email communication.
Of my other email addresses, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com recieve little (say 1 or 2 per week cf. say 15 per day on the freeuk account) even though the latter is the one I give without "anti-spam modification" in newsgroup communication.
I also have "help@" both jonbanjo and folkinfo which are "publicised" on the websites but I have never seen any spam to these accounts. The "help@" accounts are operated by more than one person though so it could be that one of the "admins" has recieved spam that I don't know of.
