    How do I stop them? I run OS X on an iMac and use Thunderbird
    Have I have picked up a virus? I have run ClamXav and Avast ans neither picks anything up. The emails say they come from me??

    ClamXav and Avast don't pick up the emails because they aren't malware - they are spam. Who is your email provider? With respect to the fact they come from you, email headers are easy to forge. They could make it say it came from anyone.

    Hi antibact1, thanks for answering.

    I use Tesco.net & I have asked them if they can do anything but is there anything I can do myself. I drag every one into a junk folder but it would be nice to trap them in the first place

    You have spam, not a virus. There are no viruses in the wild that affect Macs.

    Duff-Man says....one of my GMail accounts gets about 10 of these every day and they're always filtered into the junk mail folder. Once in a while when I am not too busy I'll run some of the spam through SpamCop.net and report it for whatever good that may do (none usually)....oh yeah!
