Numerous spam emails

Specs: Windows 7, 8Gb
i've been getting the usual crap from DHL & UPS for months now, at least 2 per day, but recently my inbox is being flooded with them, this time FedEx is making an appearance.
by flooded, i mean 400+ per day!!!

it's got beyond being annoying and i need to know how i can actually block these ip's or whatever from even hitting the server.

i use incredimail and they are all filtered as junk, but i have to wait till it sorts out all that rubbish before i can even view my legit emails....takes about 15 mins:(

Just a hunch. Type your email address in google. If it finds it then that is the reason for the junk email.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Doesn't that tell you something? Incredimail is a pretty raunchy e-mail client, jammed full of junk.
I might suggest you maybe try yahoo or gmail....much better in the long run. Also better spam filters. You can export and import your addresses easily.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
