Michal, yes...I did get a new email address...similar, but still different.
How do you "bouce back emails" so it reads as "undeliverable"?

This happens on a lot of web sites and we don't realize it sometimes. But
another my Norton Security. I think it costs about $55 with a $30
rebate...and then costs about $15 a year to renew. Norton Security has some
good features. Keeps pop-up pages from doing so, has a firewall, has a
parental control feature for those who need it, and other stuff that I
haven't even figured out yet. I've already had messages showing that
someone from Asia has been trying to "hack into my computer" and the
firewall stops that. It automatically updates the antivirus part every week
and runs a scan on my entire computer every Friday night. I just feel so
much more secure about my computer now that I've got it installed.
