    Question Never in my life..

    Never in my life would I have thought spammers would go this far.

    I was logging into my Windows 2000 Server today to do some daily work. When I logged in via Terminal Services there was a message box. You know the messenger service on Windows. It was a spam message from wholesale4you.com. How do they send messages from server-to-server? Spammers are sure going to the ends of the earth these days.

    Thanks,

    I fell asleep with my laptop Thursday night (windows xp pro) and woke up the next morning with a message just like that.

    I guess there's a program now that shoots them off to a range of IP's. I thought you had to be on the same NT domain to send console messages.
    Voiding warranties is what I do best.

    This will probably become more common. You can't click on URLs in those message boxes, meaning they'd probably get far less response than spam anywhere else.

    I wish there was a way we could really sue spammers for everything. ugh It's so getting on my nerves.

    You could hire a private eye to dig up the real sender of an email message (like their address, phone number, and so on). Then you can bill them $500. If they don't comply you can send them to a collection agency.
