I usually delete junk emails with attachments without a glance so I'm pretty ok from viruses methinks.....But I get so SICK of spammy mails telling to go peep at young willing nude girls or stupid investments schemes!!!! WHY?!?! It's getting worse, I'm receiving about 5-10 of such mails a day on my regular email server!! :(  :(

Wren - just another perspective on that weird email title:  Some people send out spam for their porn site by 'disguising' it as a message from 'a regular guy' who wants to show off his 'beautiful girlfriend' to all the other 'guys' out there.

A title like "Look, my beautiful girlfriend" could be interpreted either as an imperative, or as a suggestion, right?  In the latter case it would mean 'look at my beautiful girlfriend' ( download these pictures from my pay-per-view site) rather than 'hey, cutie, pay attention'.  

Not that it's any less disgusting, of course...but just a warning to everyone that there are a lot of spams-n-scams out there!

Regards...

My entire out look has officially KO'ed it self - true boxing style... :D   So on the up side, no virusy emails. On the down side no emails at all..

<waits for her brother to wake up so that he can fix it> It's 9:44am and I've not slept from yesterday and he's still sleeping from last night... How rude ;)

Happily my housemate is clever and works for IBM and has my puter well covered!

The latest saga in the Wren weird emails story, is that no I am recieving notes from my mailer saying that emails I have 'Sent' are undeliverable. These emails are to address I have never heard of and given that I haven't touched my email account for nearly three days, err....how am I getting failed sending messages? All the messages are about 153k. Is someone using my Wren@santharia address to send stuff.

And to top that all off, some weirdo spent three quarters of an hour in my garden last night, outside my Kitchen window!

Wren, I think I should come over to England and spent some nights in your garden to look after you. This is really weird and I hope you get rid of this annoyance soon enough, for all other cases call Koldar Luigi Mondrakken from Palermo, he'll take care of it in a more "direct" approach. ;)

For the E-Mail, it sounds like the virus got activated on your comp, usually these viruses then send themselves to all kinds of addresses, the later that someone hacked a Santharian E-Mail would be a more frightening solution so I hope that was not the case!

*hugs Koldar*

I think you can stay in the house Koldar....if your trained appropriatly of course!

Ah...I'll be right. I call the police if he turns up again, but I tell you *adopts old granny voice*  it's doing nothing for my nerves ;)   The boys have gone home though, so I wish there were some males in the house....Even if I am harder than any of my housemates.

I've run a virus scan and there's nothing come up....and I don't use Outlook, in fact I don't even have it installed in my computer, so can a virus send emails via a browser based account? Wierd.

In the meantime I'm not using my hotmail address. If you recieve an email from there delete it. If you need me I have sent Arti my Uni account details.

Outlook isnt the only source of evil viruses (unfortunately), wren-what antivirus do you have? I run Norton, it picks up whatever comes drifting... and my firewall takes care of the rest

McAfee, and its brand new. SO new in fact my computer barely has the memory to run it. Besides I'm on a LAN, we share files, one of my housemates would have it too surely? And why isn't it affecting my other email account.

*Kicks computer*
You know I don't care if it does have one!

I've reported it to MSN anyway. They can sort it out. They'll just think I'm dumb.....whats new?

As for the garden thingy: Hope that was only one episode and that's it.

But here's another address where you can try a virus scan online (Winlok provided it once and it is really good):
housecall.antivirus.com/h...t_corp.asp - You need to install a bit first, but not much:)

As a matter of fact I also got one or two "Undeliverable mails" lately which I haven't sent. And this is definitely not because I have a virus, but because the mail caption was well chosen and the target address was also put into the sender field (as you know Wren, there isn't much magic behind this). This way filter also will not exclude it perhaps. So I'm sure that's all there is behind the whole mail in case you don't find a virus with a virus checker.

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.
09 May 2017, 14:17:18
Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
