Hi There,
My ISP (Blueyonder) In The UK Has Just Introduced Their Own Virus Protection At Server Level, Any Infected Email Now Gets Deleted At Source And I Get A Notification Of Deletion Instead Of The Infected Mail.

I Applaud This As A Great Idea, However At The Moment I Am Getting Around 8 Virus Emails A Day, Not Much Spam, But Definate Virus Emails. I Have A Works Website That Does Have My Email Address On It, Am I To Assume That "Email Address Scanners" Have Randomly Picked Up My Email Address From My Works Website Or From Forums Similar To This One Or Am I Being Deliberately Targetted?

The Email Senders Name Is Usually Displayed But I Suspect That It Is Being Cloned As It Is Mainly Large Companies Like "River Island" Or "The Touring Company" That The Maill Purports To Have Come From......Anyone Got Any Advice Or Ideas?

P.S. I Have Removed The Email Address From My Works Website And Made It A Link So That My Address Is Not Shown On The Page.

Well i dont:D
Ive had about 20 in the past week...........you get runs on these from time to time,just ride it out.
One tip.........dont ever put your e-mail addy into any web page...
....If you need to pass it on then do it like this:
joeblogs @ xmail.com just get the other party to take out the spaces.That way your addy wont get harvested.
;)
