SPAM will stop. -> ->Todd If you have this showing up on a server that is behind a firewall, you may have a MUCH bigger problem. The access to the messenger service requires access to a specific port, and this problem normally only manifests itslef when the server/workstation is plugged directly into an internet pipe with a real world IP on one of it's network cards!!!!! If you are not behind a firewall/router of even the linksys family, shame on you. If you are behind a firewall... Oh boy, better look for some security problems!!!! later, J
