    I recieved an email from a friend and it worked for them, but I have not tried it myself, so I cannot comment bigbuck.
    I just thought I would post this and see if anyone had tried it themselves, but as u commented it did not work for u.
    Sorry that I cannot tell you anymore than that.

    :mad: I always delete these type messages as soon as I receive them, and have instructed those who send them to me to not do so again. This is all I have to say on this subject.

    Thanks

    ditto as wildman.
    All chain mail is spam. All unsolicited ads are spam. All mails asking for their money back is spam.
    Notify the spammer after 1st offence if he is a friend/acquaintance. Ban the spammers after 2nd offence.
    No repeat offenders yet ;)

    What do you mean bad judgement? Ten forward is for hangin' out, yeah?

    if you can find a Bayesian spam filter for your POP3 accounts, you will not need to sort the spam. Honest.

    This email was sent to me by a[ FRIEND OF MINE] and I dont have a pop3 email account, I only use AOL to send emails and I only send about 2 email a month, sometimes less, as for spam, I only get maybe 2 or 3 spam emails every 3 or 4 months, thats all I have ever got.

    Hi Stephen
    I've received forwarded emails like this one several times and I just delete them.the people(mostly) who send them dont realize there spam,I dont think,they just think their cute emails someone would enjoy,but in my opinion it's just to much darn trouble to forward them even if they werent spam.You have a good night :)

    Yes, you are right rita, I also keep getting, every so often, emails form my friend also and they are mostly spam types of emails and I usually just delete them, but I posted this one and by the looks of things it was a mistake and as u know me by now, I am not one for causing any problems or issues, but I suppose u learn by your mistakes.
