I download the 57 Mailinglists I subscribed with seperatly E-Mails
because I create a local Mail-Archive and I use another Mail to
write to the Lists. Now This E-Mail was hijacked by the Virus !!!
I get around 120 Viruses per hour !!!
Because I have only an 8 MByte account I must login all
15 minutes and kill all what is bigger then 30 kBytes.
>This virus must pluck our email addresses of the archive or something....
In Strasbourg my ISP is wanadoo.fr and I have an E-Mail
firstname.name@ISP with a 20 MByte Box. Now, since friday
I get Viruses in masssssss...
I have contacted firstname.lastname@example.org...
"We have a small problem" was the answer.
Now you must know, that I have nerver used this E-Mail
public. - Only for correspondence wirth email@example.com
and other Services from my ISP.
They suggest me to change the name of my E-Mail-Account !!!
Better I change the ISP !!!
