Re: E mail


Viruses normally get through virus checkers by more subtle ways than detectable by virus checkers. From time to time I check whether there is evidence that the bad guys have managed to harvest my email addresses by putting my email addresses in here.

If I find that an email address has been pwned I change it. It’s a pain but I have not received a phishing email for years.
