Ok, someone keeps trying to send me. I don't know who they are, but there address is firstname.lastname@example.org . What are my recourses? I use to know a site that would send viruses for you, but don't suppose it's around anymore! I could block all his mail, but that would prevent him from doing it to someone else.

Hmmm..I get several of those a day from various addresses.Wish I could find them,hehehehe.
You could do what I do and block the domain name.

This may not be a virous why not just ignore it or do what Darin says?Alistair
It wouldn't do any good to try and send anything to that account. Whoever is using it to send spam isn't checking the inbox and doesn't care.

Just block the address and go about your day. Or you could go to MSN and follow their reporting proceedure for spam. JRouche

Rob if you are using Thunderbird it has filters and Junk mail features than can auto file that stuff for you (I Like "file 13" myself) - it is free and it is not made by MacjeralSlurp - while you are at it get Firefox too and quit using Internet Exploder.
