Well if they are told about it they will hopefully sort it out in the next
patch/update.

Today I received a piece of spam, the first time this year, considering I get
over 200 emails a day that is pretty bloody good considering.
Recently several members on our mailing list were hit with the "Send money, I'm
travelling and lost all my money" attack. We know someones email address list
has been hacked.
The members are all about the competency level Geopelia is at.
Hopefully we have managed to explain it properly and accurately and no one will
fall for it.

I had a look at that. It says I would have to close the email software
before turning the spam control off.
I don't want to start fiddling with anything like that, wouldn't know how to
do it anyway.

But tonight there was nothing in the spam, so perhaps they have fixed it
their end.

We have in excess of 2000 people on the list so I think that the level of
knowledge is the norm, as is yours.

The level of people posting here is very much higher.
I always feel very dumb asking something that it seems everybody else knows.
The Help menus usually have everything except the one thing I want to know.

But people here are so nice to me.
Thanks to all, and a Happy New Year.

10 or 15 people posting and anothr 5 reading and not replying.

>I always feel very dumb asking something that it seems everybody else knows.


The only dumb question is the one you don't ask.

>The Help menus usually have everything except the one thing I want to know.


Ain't that the truth?

You too sweetheart, you too.

My orcon email account often tags emails as spam before I pop them out,
including regular bills etc. I keep meaning to check by webmail and then
change it (as I don't have it set to leave a copy on server..... Actually
replying to this may have just helped me sort my problem :-] )

Trend-Micro does not rate very well.

If you want to *pay* for a product (as you are), then Avast is your
better bet - cheaper and better.

However (again), I'd recomend Microsoft's Security Essentials. It is
free. It has better detection than Trend-Micro. It won't **** your
email around (in terms of spam filtering), 'cos it doesn't do any. But
possibly best of all for users like yourself, it has a really easy to
use installation and interface in general - it's incredibly simple to
use and drive. You really don't need to do anything at all.

*Why* are you *paying* for a product that offers inferior protection to
most of it's competative products and is causing you email problems ???

Ditch Trend-Micro and put on Microsoft Security Essentials, or... if you
really *do* want to give your money away to an AV vendor, at least give
it to Avast - which will save you about $10 USD a year (it's that much
cheaper) and is much better rated.

Your PC will also perform better, as both Avast and Microsoft rate
highly for their performance (read: *doesn't* slow your computer down
too much).

All the tests I've seen think Trend Micro is a good one. I'll look at those
websites and think about it.

Thanks for the information.
