    Ok, this is another rant about spammers. A while back, I recieved 400 some emails from this guy in one day. Then, today I receive 347 from another! Does anybody else get this many or am I just lucky?

    400 emails from one guy?? If they share a common characteristic (e.g. a From address), just use a filter to block them. Any decent email client has the ability to block senders or create rules to delete offenders from the server without even downloading them.

    Most spammers morph the addresses/subjects they show in their spams to thwart filters. If you're getting all of yours from a single guy, consider yourself lucky, you can block it all with one stroke of the mouse. Better yet, report this loser to his ISP and get his account cancelled.

    No, it's from 2 different guys. The 400 guy was from China I think and the 347 guy is from Montreal. I emailed both the ISP's and haven't gotten another email from the first guy yet. I just emailed the other today (it's in Brazil). Hopefully this will take care of my problem.
