    I have been receiving this type of e-mail by the dozens. I complained via e-mail to hughes customer service and was advised to put a block on the sender. For one thing, the info on putting the block was unintelligible to me, and secondly, what good will that do when each one of these phishing-type e-mails has a different address? I suspect they all come from the same source and simply keep changing their address to keep ahead of any blocking. As I see it, my only choice is to change my e-mail address, but I've tried for a week to find some way to talk to someone who can help me do that. Customer service is nearly useless, from my experience. With my old, local server I merely needed to make a phone call and the job was done. Sigh.
