    I use hotmail through Microsoft and I don't have to open my email to delete it. If I look at the sender and see that is an email address that I don't reconize or a name I don't reconize, I just check the little box in front of the email and hit delete. And Microsoft does the rest.

    Sorry, I was in a rush before. If it's in your deleted items, you should be able to right click on the deleted items folder and select "empty folder" to nuke everything in it without highlighting it. You can also turn off preveiw by going to view-->layout and unchecking "preview pane" jsut until you nuke those messages. If you're using the full version of Outlook, you can go to view-->preview I think.
    You should get a virus scanner and run it anyway, it sounds like you may have picked up the Klez. I think you can buy Norton Antivirus online at www.symantec.com. I'd recommend Norton!
