Wow! Sounds really nasty! I use both Eudora and Thunderbird but, I've gotten in the habit of using the web-based email access for my accounts first before I pull anything into either Eudora or Thunderbird. I started doing that so that the web-based email software would be trained (theoretically) by moving any spam to the web-based spam folder and then deleting it from there.

I have a Yahoo email account but I have only used it in the past to register for sites that I know I will never visit again but that require registration to access. I never download my Yahoo mail to my own machine and only check the account at Yahoo sporatically. I receive so much spam that appears to be sourced from compromised Yahoo accounts that I don't trust anyone who actually uses a Yahoo account--present company excepted of course...'-}}

One of the reasons I like using Zone Alarm is that it's both an incoming AND outgoing Firewall. I want to know if something wants access from my system. If it's legit then, I set the "remember" flag in Zone Alarm. I've never found (haven't really looked) for another firewall that flags both incoming and outgoing access. I don't know if it would have helped you in this instance but it might have...

Glad you got your system cleaned up...
