Hi, I am receiving a lot of emails seemingly from myself in my inbox lately. I use OE6. The subject line of these mails is usually pharmacueticals, software progs for sale or downloading and downloading new videos etc and I don't open them, but I can't block my email address either, as I use it to send an email to myself of something from other places. I can find an originating address in the properties of the mails, which is usually just numbers for the originating site. Can I use the mail rules to block them by putting the relative 'number' addresses in the 'where the from line contains people'? Preferably, is there someway I can stop these coming in altogether or am I stuck with just deleting them. Thanks for reading and in advance for any help offered. Merry Christmas to everyone and Happy New Year. hedley

Hi, sorry to hear of the problem...its so easy to spoof an email "envelope" and lots of Spam is using similar techniques. Its nothing to worry about unduly...the delete key gets 'em every time! Regards paws

Hi Paws and thanks for the reply. Ok, so nothing to worry about unduly, just delete as normal. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Hope Santa brings everything you asked for and more. May I also say Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all What The Tech subscribers/moderators etc and Happy New Year. Don't know where I'd be without you. Thanks for all the help in the past. Saved my bacon a time or two. Cheers hedley

By the way, Gmail filters spam emails even even they are sent from "my" adress.
