Thread Name: BS: Spam mail pretending to come from myself
Subject: RE: BS: Spam mail pretending to come from myself
I had one to postmaster@cresby.com with the supposed e-mail in question as an attachment. If it was not for Norton I would have fallen for it, the offending item's name was full of spaces and double extensions. Had it not been in quarrantine I would have opened. Confusion reigns - they don't know there isn't, but hope there is, a legion of idiots working for me who would just pile in.
I nearly did even though I am my postmaster.

Now my ISP just dumps the e-mails that are not on my list of active ones so they have no way of knowing if the e-mail is active or not.
Another fight back is to list a few e-mails on my website - like bill.gates@msn.com - they get the idea I think.
