Dear Kathryn,

The type of unsolicited mail you receive is most likely Bulk e-mail and
spamming. Most pop 3 servers have anti- spam software installed and I am sure
that Essex rootsweb have anti- spam software installed.
However, there is a lot of anti-spam software available, much of it FREE
I won't envoke your wrath by Advertising any particular program but would advise
you to use any of the recognised search engines to search for "Anti-spam"

Hopefully, this should reduce your flood of unsolicited mail. Internic does have
regulations to outlaw bulk e-mailing but a number of firms use anonymous
addresses so you can't even tell where the messages have come from.

Unfortunately, I have 10 e-mail addresses so when I get a bulk e-mail I'm really
pi$$ed off
