    Smont...see what you can find out about the company that is running the operation. That amount of mail can be considered a denial of service attack on your mail servers. At the very least, be sure to contact 15meg4free.com and tell them that the operator of a site on their servers launched a denial of service attack on your mailservers...

    I got one of those a day or two ago. But only one, fortunately.

    Because of the address they had sent it to I knew there was no way they got my name legitimately.

    Responsible marketing? What a joke!

    Yeah, I've received a few of these mails.
    Click on the link & it takes you to an ok looking page, & the only links off ask for an email address to continue, so no way to tell who they are.
    Shut down this site & they'll have another up in a few minutes.. :mad: :mad: :mad:

    I usually always enter email addresses into boxes like that. Haiko would be proud. marthafudgers@spammingmarthafudgers.com (though not usually that nice)

    If it makes you feel any better, I just ran an executable that submits an address with 100 characters about 15 times a second...started that thing and went out to dinner<IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon38.gif>
