    The isp would be great.
    attatched is txt I've gotten already.
    Thanks for any help.

    if emails come to a mail client like thunderbird ot mozilla you can view the whole content
    view message source
    that may get you origin
    thunderbird and mozilla only
    I don't know bout IE or messenger

    Thank you

    I use thunderbird and love it.
    Thats what I've run into. All I have is the email addy.
    I was able to find who the spammer is, a very notorious one,
    Scott Ritcher :unch: , he's running something like "TopMail" anonimous emailer,
    that uses almost no header.

    So I can't connect him to a specific email addy.
    I think I'll have to leave it up to MS and my ISP to get him.
    He's being sued by MS, multiple times.

    I'd like to go after him myself but I'm in over my head.

    Thank you again SamStoned
