Please help! For the last 3 weeks I have been receiving sexually explicit
emails from different people but they all ask that I reply to
geocities.com/their ID.They are getting more frequent but the funny thing
is,they don't have my address in the to box.They are all to different
addresses but have the same IP that I have. They started out with one every
day and now there are 15-20. I have never been to this sight. I have been
adding them to my block sender and sender domain lists but they just use
different addresses each time. Call me dumb or boring but I only have 3
sights I visit and they definitely don't have anything to do with sexual
content. Is there a way to stop these emails and why do I get them if they do
not have my address in the" to" box? Thank you

Every time you get one of those, forward it to abuse@xxxxxx
with a request that they take appropriate disciplinary action against
their member.

Emails are not necessarily delivered by what you see in the 'To' field
of a received email. If someone sends you an email via BCC addressing,
your email address will not be in the 'To' field.
