Ever since I subscribed to the Histonet, I've been receiving a lot of spam
every day (mostly from people in Africa/Europe, either telling me I've won
the lottery or asking me for my bank account number so that they can smuggle
money out of their country).
I can understand receiving this spam if this was a private home email
account, with medium security levels, but I work at a University that has a
very tight security system on their incoming email, so the only thing I can
figure out is that this mail is getting through via a Histonet member's
I must have to delete 10-15 of these spams a day (it's the only spam I get,
too). Very frustrating. Anybody have any suggestions as to how to
eliminate these pesky creatures? Blocking the Sender doesn't work; they
just change their addresses.
