I just got the second E Mail within the hour, the first one just some good willed quotes, the second offering some gruesome Spam, but the distressing thing to me is that is addresses my name and last name, my question is how that privy information was obtained, I have made a few purchases with a credit card in the past but supposedly on secure transactions and even if that is how they obtained my name I would think they would want to keep that from my knowledge, my full name that is, so not to alarm me.
Could it be that someone could read my IP address? Or a way to get around the Spam filter, or still how did they find my name?
Any clues or information about the subject I would appreciate.
1) any one can get your ip ^^ theres ways
2) email are easly obtained.
3) dont worry about spam msg just dont open them
4) get a beter email address if you have a crrapy one with out filters
5) if you need ill give u gmail

The real problem is that Gates & Co. want to own the software that runs the networked homes of the future. They won't stop at your living room--they want your garage, your kitchen, and your bathroom, too. I keep having nightmares where I can't cook dinner because My Microwave won't work until I upgrade the firmware on My Toilet.
- get some sort of antispam software. I use Norton's AntiSpam
but do remember, no matter what, spam still gets through!
I use mailwasher (link in sig)
it has a free trial, uses all the same algorithms as spam filters, but lets you manually check them. also it displays html emails as text only, blocking viruses etc.
