I've had two this morning, one with mailing-list like headers. I've reported them as spam using webmail.

Re: Multiple Spam Remittance Advice

I'm now up to 8, I suspect the increase in numbers is to play on people's innate greed with the thought of getting something for nothing before the 25th.
The people that send these emails out are the scum of the Earth, and anyone with a compromised machine should be taken off line, just like a driving ban. But...

Re: Multiple Spam Remittance Advice

So far almost 100 today the majority of which are Remittance advice.
I have the PN Spam filter on with it set the add [-SPAM-] to the Subject line yet many of these emails don't even have that.

Over 100 spam emails today! You seem to get an inordinate number of these have you considered changing your address, that would drive me to distraction.

Re: Multiple Spam Remittance Advice

The domain being spammed has a special family meaning to me so I'm reluctant to change it. The .uk version has been reserved for me so I may take that option at some stage. I've got till sometime in 2019!
I don't really get phased by cold-callers or spam emails - perhaps I am unique in this Undecided
