Report the spammer's IP? See if your ISP can block the emails from it and if their ISP can shut them down.

I'd like to help with the dismemberment. I can put that "A" I received in my Butchery class in 1993 to good use.

Ah, but the odds are good that the actual source is a friend of yours who has your e-mail address in his address book.

I have a friend who never runs any virus, spam, adware, or firewall protection, except the Windows firewall. Every 3 months or so, he just formats his disk and reinstalls all his software. I can tell when he does it; my spam count suddenly drops from 50 a day to 1 or 2 per day.

I have a web mail account that I use specifically just for this purpose. Whenever there is anything that requires an email address for online, I just use this "spam" account. That way I can just purge the account every now and again without having to worry about deleting something important.

Anyway. Sign me up for dismembering one of Spamee's digits!

Can;t this be reported, and charges brought in some way? I don;t know who you report it to, but there have been cases where mega-spammers have been prosecuted (I think???). I know how annoying this must be! Good luck!
