JUNK E-MAIL OVERLOAD: Internet Junction of Dunedin got hit with an overload of mass junk e-mail, president Eric Feinstein said last week. The company received more than 200,000 messages in a short time, which overloaded its mail server, forcing the company to shut it down temporarily. When the company got the server running again, it got hit with another big batch, Feinstein said. The junk mail, also known as spam, got around the company's safeguards on spammers by being forwarded from a different address, Feinstein said, a situation that has been corrected.
