    I have a lovely charming elderly aunt. Who has discovered the internet and email. And who forwards every chain mail/virus hoax that crosses her desk. Its' gotten so bad that family members are hiding their email addresses from her.
    I would be happy to exchange a couple of lines with her daily. I have in the past directed her to sites such as Snopes.com so that she can verify any virus warnings she receives. I have not responded to (nor forwarded) any of her chain mails.
    Yet she continues in her forward ways.

    Any suggestions on how to stop the flow?

    Depending on your email client, set up a rule or VBA code to delete anything where persons listed on any TO: lines are not in your Contacts list. (OK, OK, my answer is a bit Outlook-centric.)
