Virus Pounding

Earlier this week my email was being pounded by virus
laden emails.

I went fishing for a few days and upon my return the
situation seems to have improved greatly.

What happened? Did someone do something or did the
problemd die on its own?

I have exactly the same problem. I think the
perpretrators harvest e-mail addresses from these
microsoft newsgroups. Reason I think so is that I have
two e-mail addresses. Only one kept receiving these bogus
messages (at the rate of 25 or so per day). I then used
my other address when I posted in a newsgroup here, and
suddenly this mailbox started getting same bogus mesages,
and at about the same rate.

I'm getting the same thing, even contacted my ISP about it
and still no reply from them.

I can't find any help about this anywhere, MS is working
on it they say.

I noticed that too.

I never get half the *** I'm getting, untill I posted on

microsoft should be hiding the e-mail address in these
news groups.
