Hi Doug I tried that, but then couldn't always remember just what address I'd used at what site - particularly annoying if it's needed to log in. I've just resorted to fairly draconian email filters that are sometimes a bit over the top, but get the job done ;) > Suspected farming should always be reported to David privately... I don't think mining of David's lists is at fault here, given that they've used several addresses for me and I only post here with this one. Plus one of the addresses was one I used to register with Search400, but I stopped using them once I realised they were passing my address to others, when I'd ticked the box to opt out from list sharing. I guess maybe they've just aquired such a list and are busy making use of it :( Regards, Martin -- email@example.com (plain text emails only) http://www.dbg400.net /"\ DBG/400 - DataBase Generation utilities - AS/400 / iSeries Open \ / Source free test environment tools and others (file/spool/misc) X Debian GNU/Linux | ASCII Ribbon Campaign against HTML mail & news / \
