you can safely open the email message.
DO NOT OPEN ANY ATTACHMENT.
DO NOT RESPOND TO ANY UNSUBSCRIBE LINK.

in the <header> information look for these items:

name@computer.com ...or: .net ...or: .org ....
and
202.131.135.226

go to your email server blockers list and add these to
the
list. you can use either numbers or @computer.xxx
whatever the blockers format is.

it is safer to block the offending email then it is to
unsubscribe.
unsubscribe just verifies your address is REAL and you
will get more and more and more...
