Tony Cook???
« on: August 02, 2017, 01:30:07 AM »
Does anyone on this forum know who Tony Cook is or do any of you get
e-mails from him?
I keep getting e-mails with a link to go to (I never go to the link) and there are
a ton of carbon copied addresses that his e-mail is going to. A lot of those addresses
seem to be  members of the scroll saw forums.
I wish I could block his address but, that hasn't stopped the e-mails and I would like
to know who the hell he is, where he is getting all these addresses, and WHY I keep
getting them.
Thanks!

Thanks for the reply, Mark,
I marked it to go to my junk box but, there are no options to block the sender or
report it as phishing.

I haven't had any problems with emails from Tony Cook but I do use Mailwasher http://www.mailwasher.net/  It is a free program that fits between my email program and the mail server.  Mailwasher checks the mail server and shows a list of emails waiting for me.  I can look at the sender and subject line and mark any suspicious emails as spam.  Then when I click the download button, the spam messages are deleted at the server and then those I want to see are downloaded.

When an email is deleted at the server, it doesn't get to my computer so there is absolutely no chance that any malware reaches my PC.

There is an option to white list (or black list, ie. Tony Cook) senders or web sites or to mark emails as spam.  The program also references known lists of spam sites and automatically marks suspected emails.  You can then investigate those and, if you want, can download those emails anyway.

I find it invaluable, and the price is right.

Good luck,
Jim
