    People that e-mail or forward everything, constant e-mails!!

    Do you have someone that e-mails you every single joke, picture or video file they recieve? I have a few people that do this, its the biggest pain in the ass. I recieve constant e-mail from these guys at least 12 a day, I dont really even open them I just delete them. Its not a huge deal but it does get a bit annoying. I am still on dial up, high speed has not made its way to my block yet, one of these guys loves to send me video files that are in the thousands of mega bytes. These files make my PC useless for at least a a hour depending on the size of the file. Once he sent me back to back files that clogged my PC for 5 hours.

    I have asked they not send me all that crap unless it is the greatest thing they have ever seen. They dont seem to get it.

    My question is this - Is it possible for me to DELETE these e-mails before they arrive on my PC so I dont have to sit and wait for them to download? On Saturday a Uncle sent me pictures of his head, he had just had brain surgery to remove a tumor. Now...I love my Uncle and all but I did not need to see his scar plus the pics were gigantic and took three hours to load on my PC.

    How can I delete these before they get to my PC, is it possible??

    Well I dont really want to change my e-mail address. I get too much work e-mail and other stuff. The onyl way I would change my e-mail address is when I am able to get a high speed line.

    Has anyone had any luck with the Satelight high speed system? I have a satelight for TV and have nad no problems with it. I have heard nothing but negative things about Satelight Internet access.

    Only tell those joke people the new address

    Then just check it every month or so to delete the crap all at once.

    So if I get a excite, hotmail or G-mail account it will download them but will not slow my PC down because its loading onto that site and not on my PC? When I go to view it it wont sit and doanload..download..download...download..download. ..download for ever and EVER!!

    Yep both of these people are 50's, I dont know how new to the net they are.
    The must sit and surf the net for jokes and other crap just looking for shit to send out. The worst are the ones that have been forwarded on about 20 times so the structure of the sentence is all fucked up or it has 20 >>>>>>> at the start of each sentence.

    They each got my e-mail from my Buisness card. One guy send me sick shit, videos of chics fisting each other. He sent me something a few weeks ago with some gal that had her cell phone set to vibrate mode, she called her self over and over. That was the breaking point for me.

    If I'm not mistaken, with those types of accounts, you have to click on the attachment and download it (it doesn't just automatically start to download when you click on the email).

    So if you open the email and the attachment is like 5MBs then don't click on it.

    I had to add my grandmother to my junk mail filter.

    OLO, there's only one satellite 'broadband' company out there, and my experience with Direcway was absolutely awful. I say 'broadband' because it's not true broadband--it's more like having a really fast connection, yet getting no more done than you would with dial-up. They put a lot of usage constraints on how much data you can transfer over a given time (and it's arbitrary!). Their customer service is literally the worst I've ever dealt with. After five weeks of trying to get them to get the system installed (their sub-contractor had a sub-contractor who didn't know what her subcontractor was doing), two weeks on the phone with their support and my customer (trying to get the damn thing to work), a flight to Texas, and eventually being passed on to one of their "top level engineers (who said no, when I asked if he had any interest in solving my problem)," we ended up losing that client at a huge cost. Really, really bad juju going on there. Direcway can only behave like that because they have no competition, and no incentive to get better. I can't wait until WiMax and broadband over power lines puts those schmucks out of business!

    People who do that to me generally find themselves on my spam list. Buh Bye!

    Yes. It is possible. I'll have to do some digging but I know a few shareware programs.

    Does your particular internet provider provide you with web access? you could log into your web access and delete any messages there before you open your outlook (express) to download the rest.

    Do you have web access to your mail? If so, check it before opening your local email client on your PC - the files will still be on the mail server and will not have been downloaded to your machine yet. View them, delete them while they are still on the mail server - then you won't have to download them. If you don't have web access to email, you might want to change to a new provider that does.

    I am with you, OLO. What makes me the madest is that they forward and don't just cut and paste. Then I have to open 5-10 other emails to get to the crap they sent. And they don't even say hello or hey you might find this funny. Nope! They just forward it!
