So whats everyone think if you must usewinBlows

 

presumably exchange/OE is obviously out but how about IE?

would using Opera or firefox/thunderbird help most MS bound people?

 

it seems once you get a few it quickly builds... strangly my most common is mandrake advisory... Ive unsuscribed like 10x butI still keep getting alerts for my laptop .... but I know uits not real spam they just are to incompetent to sort it out and its kinda interesting getting 8.2 securiy alerts ????LOL what do I do for fun!

My guess is Thunderbird would. No viruses, no "automagical" launching of files, plus when you DO got spam, you can mark it as "junk" and move it to your spam folder.

 

My question is: do you even have to have Outlook open before they can access your address book? Or can it be done through IE, or even as soon as Windows has started up (well, maybe that's a little paranoid)??

On windex, if you use at least a double firewall, you can be relatively secure. The "holes" are created by the os itself, communicating your movements to Big Brother. Make windexs act like an os, and your half way there! It is really a giant bloated chunk of virul-ridden spamware that spys on you. (Or is it spyware that spams you? I don't know!) B)
