email problems anyone?

just wondering if this is happening to anyone else (iam quite sure it is). maybe its that new virus everyone seems to be talking about?..

for the past few days i've been getting about 400 new emails every day from different senders, and with different subjects (although often the subject is "hi" or "hello"). each one is between 30kb and 35kb in size, so naturally my storage limit is rapidly becoming full. anyone else finding this?

If any of the e-mails include a .txt file, it might contain the mydoom virus..

Also disable HTML mode while going through the e-mails

I haven't noticed any changes in my inbox, just the regular spam =(

   with that attitude. i can assure you it is much, much more important than that.

you could block them.. or turn on junk mail filter, set to exclusive (if you've got hotmail.. )

no problems here iether...aside from the daily spam emails....

by the way, i did receive only one "hello" email containing an attachment soemtime last week...but as a rule of thumb, NEVER open any attachments (even if sent by people u know)...unless u are ALREADY expecting something from someone...so that email went straight to my trash..

no i never even open the mail (iam on hotmail). my junk mail is on exclusive and it still gets through somehow, and ive tried manually blocking them, but as they're from lots of different senders, it has no great effect. and there's no way of blocking them with respect of their file size. bastards.
