Thank you very much for the help,Alan.
I did everything you said+it was easy too!
I find that when I go to the actual website forums (ie:Gmail), I have such a hard time understanding what is said. People like you here at BC make learning computers so much more rewarding.
The strange thing about this Gmail spam business, is that the addy affected is my mother's actually. She used to have a laptop, but gave up on it over a year ago as she couldn't get the hang of navigating thru Gmail. I've kept her account open just in case she ever wants to get back online. She doesn't ever use my computer+doesn't even know my password anyway.
I have 2 different Gmail accounts myself, but neither one has been hit with the obscene spam that her account has been.
I'm wondering if she didn't click on some link in an attachment in an email,don't know.
Also,I did set up a filter in her account that stated any emails sent to her that were not in her address book were to be deleted. Don't know why that didn't work tho.
Thanks again for your help. I'll be sure to copy your instructions+keep them readily available for any future outbreaks of this sort. Advertising is one thing, but pornography is totally NOT acceptable!
