Spam which is designed to crash POP and many mail readers...
[More proof that these "spammers" aren't selling anything, they're just garden-variety petit criminals trying to disrupt the internet...] Anyhow, has anyone else seen this recent spate of spam which is basically designed to crash POP and Netscape and other programs in the past few days? It's not you, they've found "from" addresses which cause problems, the usual first symptom is a bunch of people complaining about "stuck" POP locks or problems with Netscape, elm and other mail readers. [Oh yeah I'm suuuurrrre these are just "honest" business people, who just don't want anyone to be able to read their ads...] BTW, they really do look mostly like legitimate ads, albeit for your typically questionable products (stop smoking herbs or something like that.) These so-called spammers are laughing their asses off at us. -- -Barry Shein Software Tool & Die | email@example.com | http://www.std.com Purveyors to the Trade | Voice: 617-739-0202 | Login: 617-739-WRLD The World | Public Access Internet | Since 1989 *oo*
