What email program are you using? Some of them allow you to view email headers to get ISP details etc. from without actually opening the email - I think both Outlook and Outlook Express do this, but I can't check just now. If nobody has told you how by tonight I'll try to get back and check it up when I get home.

It is SPAM. Do not reply, simply delete.

SPAM is inherently difficult to trace. Replying only helps to verfiy you address and your name will be passed on to many more.

You can configure a rule to simply delete all email from this addess. Or use the blocked senders function in outlook express to delete them.

I sugest you get a program such as Mailwasher (free on PC world disc).
This enables you to sort out the rubbish before downloading it and putting in a block to automatically block it or similar in future.

Never accept an invitation to E-mail sender to stop as this is a device to check to see if they have the right address and it is then onsold to numerous other sites thus multiplying the problem.
