It seems like 90+% of the email SPAM I get these days (Nearly all
touting ED remedies) comes from users with .gmx email accounts.

I have a few folks I communicate with who have .gmx email accounts so I
can't just have my email client junk all email from .gmx accounts and
have to add each new .gmx SPAM sender to my email filtering list so they
get dumped into my trash email folder.

What is it about .gmx? Are they super cheap to use and is that why so
many spammers seem to be useing it?

Thanks AFCANs,

Jeff

Report the offending emails to your email service provider. They'll be
able to interpret the message headers to identify where they are really
coming from (the From: address means little) and take appropriate
action.

You know you've arrived on the internet when you start getting spam
'From:' yourself without anyone hacking into your email account or
getting access to your computer.
