Hi all,

Has anyone with an e-mail address noticed a big jump in the amount of spam being received over the past week? I've had my orcon address for prob a good 5 years now and been fairly spam free all this time (with the odd one slipping through) but now am getting approx 20-25 a day coming through.
The Spam filter on Windows Mail is working well but using Webmail I have a few to get rid of.

I'm not using Orcon but my SPAM emails have gone through the roof over the last week. On average two an hour. For the last three years I had nothing, now I have a flood.
