Hey there! I opened up outlook(2003) like I always do, and BAM...wierd stuff happening.
1) there never used to be lines between my email entries, and now there are
2) All of the sudden I am getting these SPAM mails, Much more than I used to, and it says SPAM-HIGH, SPAM-MEDIUM, SPAM-LOW in front of all the subject lines. SOME of them even show as SPAM with like my mom and other entries that I get email from regularly. This is very distracting. I do very little online purchasing, and fill out forms like NEVER. I also have little time to fiddle with anything, I just open my mail, read it and that is it, I have not changed any settings.
How can I change this back to the way it was?
How can I get rid of all of this SPAM junk?
How did this HAPPEN??! (LOL)
Any help will be much appreciated!

IF you have WIndows XP, the best thing to do would be to do a system restore to an earlier date when it was working.
