Your spam filters are set correctly suzulu. even with that an occasional spam gets to my inbox and a good e-mail arrives in my trash. This is why trash and spam should be stopped - you may miss a good e-mail in lots of it.

The next one is Earn With Roulette. This seems to be a new one and it is suggesting I could earn USD600 if I play roulette. Goodness knows how much money I'd have to feed them before I 'earned' a penny! This one has an unsubscribe facility which I didn't click because yesterday's similar one didn't work.

That's 10 from them now.

The next one is YG Promotions. Apparently my scratch card has arrived.

This one had an unsubscribe facility which seemed to work.

Sometimes also I do get the occasional spam in my Inbox and proper emails get into the Spam folder

The next one is Canadian Pharmacy wanting me to buy some viagra for about $176. I don't want to offend anyone but I'd probably get a better 'viagra' effect from a good pint of Guinness!

I've had a look at my wife's Spam and Trash and she has lots more than me but most of it seems to be from companys that she has/may have contacted and they want her to buy more stuff from them. Two of her Spam should have come to me - about a free copy of Digital Photography Magazine. When I tried to contact them the 'merchant not active' appeared on a blank page. This is good as I would probably have had to put in my e-mail address to get the free magazine.

The next one is Ilan Leads and I'm not opening it as the subject is incomprehensible!

The next one is UKC Promotions which says 'Here is your money' followed by my first two names.

Instead of opening this one I Googled it and found that they sell electronic stuff with a minimum order of 300 items! Also at the top of their home page was a completely different item that my wife had enquired about with a different company about 2 months ago. Probably coincidence but very strange.

The next one's from Money Expert with the subject Money. It's good that a money expert puts money as the subject of their e-mail. Unfortunately I have none for them so I'll just delete this one without checking it.

The next one's from 'newsletter' offering me $10 or $20 with free spins. Obviously another gambling one to be deleted.

Another one from 'Newsletter' offering me $10 or a free spin. This isn't quite as good a bargain as the one from 'newsletter!?
