    Sorry about this I've not come across these before. I've had two emails now pretending to be from Ebay. I haven't opened them but my NOD imon has picked them up saying they can't be cleaned so I've clicked on delete. Is it now safe to just delete these emails? I've done a system scan and all seems clean and everything is up to date. Also on the email can I right click and go to properties to see where this email is being directed to as I have more than one email address? If I could find out to which address these are being sent I will bin the email address. Thanks for your help. Andie

    If NOD is picking it up, then you are most-likely safe. The easiest way to get rid of an infected email is to delete it. It won't be a threat unless you open it. I have seen dozens of the ebay email and NOD has caught them all.

    **General rule** If you don't know where it came from...delete it.

    Thanks Capp

    Is it safe to right click the sender to see which email address they are sending it to?

    Those two emails are SPAM, which means Junk-email. If you see any e-mails that say they're from Ebay, just report them and delete them. DO NOT open junk-email.
