That's odd spam, Jess. It kind of looks like the rubbish that shows up in Microsoft Word when copy something into it in a text that isn't supported. So maybe, your email client can't read the message correctly. Maybe?

I've had a lot of email addresses that have given me spam, and I've finally found one that works unbelievably well. Gmail is Google's email server, and I've had it over 6 months and I think I've gotten 2 spam messages in that time. Gmail is pretty neat for lots of reasons. You have to be invited by a member to join though. If any of you wants to try it out, I have 50 invites that I will hand out. I just need your email address.

I don't get spam that often.
My Emails are not sent directly to my computer but instead to another provider where my post is sorted into 3 catogories.
The spam mail is red and I can delete it straight away without opening them or having that kind of mail on my computer.

Last night, I got a spam mail from a sender called "Hooligans" on my private email. There was no subject so I opened it, thinking that it might be related to the movie. There was nothing, just a few letters like GHYTFHY. However, within minutes, I got like 50 emails from the same sender so I immediately blocked him/her and ran my virus scan.

Anyone else had something like this?

Yeah, that's happened to me before on my Yahoo account. I think when you open the email it tells the sender that it's an active account so you just keep getting more. So annoying.

A while back I kept getting Spannish spam that Hotmail couldn't open because it had a virus in it.

ARG! okay, i know we've all always gotten spam in our email boxes... but lately i've been getting tons! i cleared out my junk box about 3 hours ago... it had 21 spam emails... i just check it, it now has 18 spam emails! And it's stupid crap! like this:

ΰǰ 21C ڰ ݵ!!<Ĺ> liq

and

ΰǰ 21C ڰ ݵ!!<Ĺ> tpzta

One, does anyone even know what that could be translated as? i know a while back i was getting some german spam  but that... i cannot figure out WHAT that it is. Two, does anyone know where it comes from? and/or anything to do to get rid of it besides changing your email? It's getting to the point to where if i leave for a week, i have 200+ spam letters when i get back.

That's probably in Chinese, Jess, or some other language that has a different set of characters. If you don't have a specific program installed, you can't read it. Well, you probably won't be able to read it anyway.

Yeah, both Yahoo's and Hotmail's junk mail filters are great. The only thing with hotmail is that it closes your account if you don't open it in about a month or so, and you lose everything!  I also get a lot of Viagra, Cialis, etc. spam on my work address (MS Outlook) and so I use the Junk Mail filter and Rules Wizard quite often.

Try to learn more about the security features (filters) available for your current e-mail, Jess. If it doesn't work, better get a Yahoo or Hotmail address.

I also got that hooligan e-mail, Cristiel. Hmmm... weird.
