Something is jacking emails
You should write that to Laz. I don’t understand squat, but I learn from experience pretty well at my age.

I use Yahoo for my Email and have not had any problems.
While I get up to 20 spam mails per day, they are automatically put into the spam folder by Yahoo.
I can periodically check it for any real Emails, before dumping the contents.
It is very rare for me to see a spam mail in my normal inbox.
I would never use the ISP for email, as you are in deep doodoo if you move and/or change your ISP.
I check my email every week whether I’m expecting any email or not. I only read the stuff from people whose address I recognize and delete the rest, but nobody I know would put “Hey” as the subject line. So I think I’ll be alright.
Anyway, thanks for the heads up. If anybody I know does send me an email with “Hey” as the subject line, I’ll delete it.
Being a rancher I get legitimate daily e-mails with the subject line “Hay”!
That’s all you got. Hah!
I mean Hey!
How about “Hey you”?
Yep, I got nailed from a friend. Ended up spamming a bunch more people. Thorough virus scan found it. Mine was “Hello”. Wondered WTH my friend had sent me the thing for, some sort of make money online scam.
I used to get at least a dozen of those “You are a lottery winner” emails every week. I found a way to stop them.
Iwould forward the one from Liberia to the email address of the one from Nigeria and the one from France to the one from The Congo, etc.
I think it set up an endless loop that would bury their servers.
All I know is that it worked for me.
I would open that, yep.
Is Yo! safe?
The rule of thumb is: Hey,Ey,Aye, Oy, and sometimes Yo.
Thanks for the heads up.
P.J. can tell you how he actually engaged one of the Nigerian fools a couple of years ago.
How about, “Heya?”
I get one from a group I belong to that has a subject line “Heil!” Is that safe to open?
