New SPAM Problem

by 6 comments

Recently I am getting spam with the "confirm" window popping

The one you send when you want someone to acknowledge
that you got their email.

This is another new pain in the _ _ _!

If you have any idea on how to block that from
popping up please let me know.

    Your browser should be set to blocking all popups. That is how I do it.

    Consult with whoever makes your browser as to how to set this.

      I am not talking about mt browser.
      I am talking about my email client.

    Is it popping up because you're opening it or because you have a "reading/viewing pane" in your e-mail client? If it's the latter, remove the reading/viewing pane from your e-mail client. (And if you're opening it, well.... don't! ;-) )

    There *may* also be a setting in your e-mail client that says to never confirm receipt and to not ask you about it...

    What email reader are you using?

    If you use the Google toolbar and hover over the popup blocker, you can see it is a site by site basis. So you can block some sites and not others.

    For instance I block pops in Gmail but in the Warrior Forum I allow them so I can get notice of my PMs.

    As well IE7 has a pop-up blocker and so might your anti-virus/security software suite. LOL with all 3 on I still get a few pop-ups.
