    Me 2, I get this crap daily. I also receive daily about 20 e-mails on Viagra and that drives me crazy. I can not understand why it just can’t be stopped easily! Sure there are anti-spam tools but what i would like to have is to not receive these kind of emails at all

  4. Actually I get very little spam but I am a PayPal seller which may be why I get it worse. But regardless, the problem is very widespread but Outlook 2007 and IE7 do an amazing job protecting.

    Oh. I do get those. 9 out of 10, they land in my junk folder though.
