    Brian H I had to reply to you on this I get the same thing and I use an
    alternate email addy here *IT* gets about 10 spam mail per month whereas my
    primary addy gets *bombarded* with the *same* junk the OP posted. I use my
    primary addy for family and friends the I use here and
    to register to sites with so my primary addy got released somehow. I better
    not find out Bellsouth sold my addy!!!!!!!
