Do you have an ISP that scans your e-mail for spam, a program that marks spam for you or Microsoft Office XP on your computer? as they would all potentially put [SPAM] in the message you are reading.

Spam filters on your email server will do this for you. It is marked as Spam according to rules which are set up on the email server software.

some places you are a member of can sell you email to spam lists whosend out spam. other ways are spyware that can find its way onto yourcomputer and they can monitor your surfing habits and send you specialspam you might be interested in based on websites you go to.

Thank you all for your responses, on closer inspection it is my Freeserve account that is kindly providing Spam warnings.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
