Hi Martin,

For your info, The State of Washington, USA
has fairly tough laws against spam.

But if you do business with a "on-line pharmaceuticals co"
all bets are off -- under the "recent business exception"
you have given them a license to spam you to death.

IIWY, I would strongly consider "getting a new email address"

Also you didn't say how you paid them,

But if it was by credit card,
IIWY, I would have my bank issue me a new credit card.

Better safe than sorry.

It is also good to have a firewall..
