    Hello all,

    I have received a spam email, and do not know how this person has got my
    email address as I NEVER use it on the Net at all. I've blanked out my
    details for obvious reasons. Is it possible to find the sender's ISP and
    report the email to them?

    There's various ways. The simplest way is to sign up to SpamCop,
    and let them do the work for you.
