Don't reply or in any way try to contact the e-mail spammers, unless you have an e-mail address that you don't care about because that e-mail address is guaranteed to fill with spam as soon as you respond to anything from these idiots. Most likely though the sender's (sp?) e-mail address and most relating info will not exists.

The best way to fight the spam is never to post your e-mail address on any website (including Drobe), never subscribe to any mailinglists with your primary address and NEVER EVER reply or in any way respond to spam - clicking on "Remove me" links included!

What I have done and has worked quite well is I have my own domain name (cheap, $9 a year at www.goddady.com) and whenever I signup for a newsletter or any mailinglist or have to register at a website, I create a new e-mail address with the name of the website or newsletter as the address (i.e. drobe.co.uk@mydomain.com). That way if any of the companies/organisations/websites sells their e-mail list to a spammer I will know immediately who's to blame and I simply close the relevant e-mail address.
