Spam

Hi All, I have received a spam email for that little blue pill & bizarrely it was sent from my Plusnet email adress to my Plusnet address & delivered to my inbox.  I use Outlook & have the option to block spam addresses which if I do on this occassion I will be blocking myself!! My question is this: How do I deal with this or would it be easier to ignore it?

Ignore it, its a well known trick of spammers to forge your name into the sent line, Unfortunately it also means that sometimes you get bounced e-mails that did not come from you. -wait for the day when we can strangle spammers

Well, they're not much good to me, that's the downside of having a multi-gender name you get offered all sorts of weird & wonderful things as it's automatically assumed to be male Angry maybe we shouldn't go there!!
