SPAM

Has anyone else been getting a sudden influx of Spam mails over night? My usual tally of 50-70 (max) in my Spam filter shot up to almost 500 overnight! And I seem to be getting quite a good flow hitting that, and seeping through into my regular emails, still.

Just wondered if it was just me or a more general thing? Most of the mails carry the 'Mail Undelivered' tag with the obligitory attachment which never gets opened ;p

Re: may i suggest a move to a gmail a count...
My span problems have decreased massively over the last year or two with new technology that Wanadoo/Freeserve started using. I've no idea why it's suddenly started again. It's all 'Mail Returned' type mails so I'm wondering if someone's been using my email address as a cover for spam and my account is now getting a load of bounces back?

Eitehr way it's annoying but not the end of the world. I'll see if it dies down again. I don't really want to change email addresses as I've had the same one now for a good 7+ years and have no idea how many mailing lists and people I'd have to inform if I changed over :(

Did you leave your email at a dodgy site somewhere recently?

No. I'm very careful where I input my email addresses :(

Oh, and *I'd* never be on a dodgy site in the first place!!!! Honest guv!

I normally get about 40 overnight and got 120 last night. I don't think it's just you.
