Remember, edit replies. Thanks so much, Spider and Gangle. I ran the virus check on my computer and it came up clean from any virus, so at least I'm reassured about that. I would be interested to know how they can use my Email address - or at least look like they are, but so long as they aren't sending out loads of Emails in my name, then I can stop being concerned. Odd though.
