Newsguy has a mailbox service with 25MB of space (about
6 hours of the full-scale email bombs I've experienced),
but I haven't learned how to use it. As far as I can see
sending mail to [email protected] doesn't work.
When I create a posting whill_a@t_picovolt-dot-com is the
new From: address I see, but [email protected]
is the address you get, go figure.

In future y'all will have to edit my address above. :>(

Thanks,

I have been also been under an apparent email attack .
The quantity may be related to an infection with the welchia worm.
The worm has now been removed with the aid of symantic.com/avcentre/fixw
elch.e.
My slow dial up (my Cu pots line is 10 miles long) cant cope with
loading 4000 emails to erase.

I've finally (after a decade) been forced to munge my e-mail address.
8-( Like Win, I've gotten about 10,000 copies of that virus, each
about 140-160K (1.5G of spam) over about the last week.

You might want to try mailwasher for deleting all that crud at the
server. It's free/cheap depending on the version. Unfortunately it
won't automatically delete without clicking so I can't use it to keep
my mailbox from overflowing when I'm out of town. Even without
spending an hour or two setting up filters to catch all the variations
of Swen subject/from lines, you can easily sort by size and delete
anything with a size in the range it hits.

Best regards,
Spehro Pefhany

You're suggesting folks ahould memorize your email address,
rather than put it in their address book? Instead, how about
suggesting that the authors and software-engineering managers
of Microsoft's email programs and address book should check
their work before forceably installing it on our computers, no
choice allowed, by the repeatedly-convicted monopoly company?

p.s. I've hand-inspected and erased more than 2300 virus emails
in my non-microsoft mailbox in the last 16 hours. This was made
necessary in order to read the 35 legitimate emails I received.
I'm beginning to get really angry now.

Same here .

Penalty for virus writers - ECT from a pole pig. With dru sponges .

Memorize or write down. I do not use addressbooks. Did not bother to
in the past; now I feel justified since the most prevalent e-mail viruses
use them.

If you mean electroconvulsive therapy, I think that's not cruel enough
since one normally loses consciousness from that. The worst effects are
physical injury from the convulsions and erasing of short-term memory.
