I get emails like that also. The are phishing for your personal information to steal your identity. The best thing to do would be to not respond and put these emails in your junk mail folder.

Well the first one expects you to be stupid enough to download a file, which of course would contain something destructive.

I zap all spam mail but it's still annoying to get.

Hhmmmm,

I never get any spam or junk mail. I have yet to recieve any any kind of junk mail in my primary email addresses. I have a yahoo, and gmail ,and hot mail account created, I give those addresses, when I have a feeling, that I may get spammed.
