No, at least five persons have to block a mail before it is blocked in general. And then they may still recieve it, but in the SPAMfighter folder, so they can accept it (or not) if they want to. You cannot block me from mail I want to recieve.

You can bet that I will let you all know....   Cool

But it all begins with repairing the CD drive. A CD "exploded" while playing, and there are thousands of little pieces of the disc preventing the door from closing - and so far I haven't had the courage to open the tower, in order to fix it.

I was merely referring to the installation CD's folder, C:\WINDOWS\I386
- which I used to reinstall SP2

CPU Name : Intel Celeron D (Cedar Mill-V)
Vendor String : GenuineIntel
Name String : Intel(R) Celeron(R) D CPU 3.33GHz

Thanks, Darwin, for hoping  Wink

Yes, you are right, Darwin, your memory serves you well. I bought this machine February the 24'th, but from day two I was disappointed with it. However, I expected that I had installed too many programs for the memory to handle (150 apps on the first day), so I delayed my reactions, thinking that the problems would go away when I purchased and installed some more RAM. As time has gone bye, I have come to realize that memory alone will not do the trick. There is something basically wrong with either the hardware or the i386 (reinstalling XP didn't help), but I haven't got a clue of what it may be - I can only tell about the symptoms. The situation has of course been worsed by my poor understanding of secure behaviour for Windows users. You know; "do you really want to delete this backup file?" and such. Well, I didn't actually delete a backup file, but the principles are just about the same, I guess; very often I am too hasty to act, and too slow to react (sorry): too slow to undo, and such.

One other thing I did when I got worried about security/fed up with spam was switch from Outlook Express to Outlook. It's not to bad a learning curve and I could never go back now. I dimly recall you talking about having switched in the other direction, Curt, ...

Yes, I have been forced to replace my darling Outlook with Outlook Express (my Office 2003 will not repair / re-install) until I manage to repair this XP or get a new PC.

I have been told that the auto-preview is a security risk?? For this reason I only had the feature enabled in subfolders (in Outlook), and don't use it in Outlook Express. But I do miss it, along with a lot of other features...

As for newsgroups, I was using RSS Popper in Outlook, so I never needed Outlook Express.

The problem is that a number of legitimate and useful newsletters are sent from different email addresses for each issue

- that would of course be a problem. Only, I have never heard of such newsletters. Are they for some closed circle only? Sorry for asking, it really is no concern of mine.
5306  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I wanna hurt this guy! on: August 28, 2007, 11:18:46 AM
  - don't waste your time trying to stop this at the source as you will be wasting your time (sorry, I realise that this sounds defeatist!) -

I "SPAMfighter-blocked" the spam mail (from the initial post in this thread), and then tried to send a mail from me to me. The first one was blocked by Outlook Express (OE), so I told OE to mark mails from me, and then I send off another mail from me to me. This one went all through. But I will of course have to wait and see if "he" (the guy I wanna hurt) ever sends me another mail (from "me"), before I know if the trick has worked the way I am hoping.

Thank you all for the advices!  thumbs up

I don't know what app you are referring to, Carol, but it is not SPAMfighter. Once you have clicked "allow", the sender will never be deleted no matter what others may think of it.
5308  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I wanna hurt this guy! on: August 28, 2007, 10:33:35 AM
To classifiy SPAMfighter as "useless", is not being serious.

SPAMfighter is of course just another anti-spam filter -
(and I really don't know or care what technique it is using):

Quote
When a new e-mail arrives, it is automatically tested by SPAMfighter. If it's spam, it will be instantly moved to your SPAMfighter folder. ... >

 - but SPAMfighter is firstly and most important a community:
Quote
> ... If you receive a spam mail that is not detected, click on a single button, and the spam mail is removed from the rest of the 3.739.694 SPAMfighters in 217 countries in seconds.

- and if the anti-spam filter is saying "this mail is spam" and you think 'not', then it is extremely easy for you to get the mail anyway: just open the SPAMfighter folder and have a look! Many of the apps recommended here will not give the user any chance to evaluate the mail that has been rejected by the filter - and I find such behavior unacceptable.


SPAMfighter also is:

Darwin, your post confused me. I have Secunia running ("Secunia PSI is monitoring your software"), and I also have 1 'end-of-life' program installed. Secunia will tell me when I ask it, but it has never been "botherin me to uninstall".
5310  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I wanna hurt this guy! on: August 28, 2007, 08:36:03 AM
I have no garantee if he was sending to me only or to many, but Yes, he is sendning mails to at least me using my email address in the "From" box - see image in initial post.
5311  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I wanna hurt this guy! on: August 28, 2007, 08:16:32 AM
Thank you, friends, for all the advices; I really appreciate it.  thumbs up

However, if you please will forgive me saying so, In my little mind you are all kind of missing the point, because I gave too little informations. I have SPAMfighter installed, and it is so good that less than ONE spam mail per day or even per week will get through the filter (sensitivity: Normal)- I receive some twenty to thirty mails a day + DonationCoder + RSS. You have suggested little improvements, if any. How does one block a mail that has my own email address in the "From" box? I am not going to block my own email address (my email address may of course be blocked, but not ME, if you know what I mean, I still wanna be able to mail myself), and I am not going to have some third party filter decide what kind of content I can send to myself!

Edit: I must admit that I didn't understand what iphigenie told me to do.
What is SPF?

What do you call the "titelbar" (see image) in Outlook / Outlook Express (- and what is it named in Danish...)  tellme

I was thinking that it must be posible to block my own email address this way. Understand me right; I do not want to block myself, as I sometimes are mailing myself, but mails from myself have my full name in the titelbar, not my email address, so I was thinking that maybe I can stop it by blocking mails that have my email address in the titelbar?

Right now I am very upset, very indignant: I have just recieved an email from myself!! Damm it, how do you block a spammer who is using your own email address as sender? I have never before been into any kind of contact with www.magicvalleyaeroclub.com or www.leximot.net - Oh, could I get my hands around these people's necks.... Let me be honest with you: I wanna hurt them! Where is the address to some Internet police?
