I have one other question which is this: How do I stop getting trojan emails? My parents use Outlook Express, and are often receiving emails from obvious spammers with titles such as: Your ecard greeting is available, You have an ecard, You won't believe this greeting, You have an online greeting, You have one ecard waiting, We have a ecard suprise (which I bet they do, , This is hilarious, Now this is funny, and many others. I googled around, and some of them definitely are viruses. I don't think my parents have opened any of them, but its getting annoying, and I'm wondering if there's any way to block the addresses, or the IP address, or something. Most likely they're some cracker group in Asia that switch their address 100+ times a day, but is there anyway to get rid of them? Thanks for the help.
PS.- Side note: One other really weird thing happened, and this is kind of confusing- I received in MY inbox 10 or so emails all saying: "Failure notice" or something like that, and each was not sent from me, but yet it appeared in my inbox. It was sent from a postmaster that I didn't recognize, and contained two files: a folder containing a message I'd received the day before, and some .dat file or something like that- sorry I deleted it, but I think the file was harmless. These messages didn't appear in my sent box, but do messages appear as "Sent" when a zombie computer is sending them, meaning would you fine them in the "Sent" section of outlook express? I know I didn't try to send that message on to anyone. Why would I get failure notices for emails I haven't sent from a postmaster that isn't mine? Are the events related, or just a fluke thing? Anyways, hope that makes some kind of sense. thanks again!
