I keep receiving emails from people making an enquiry from 'donotreply@foliopic.com'. I think I'm expected to click on the link but I'm reluctant to do so because of the random letters and the lack of a real message. I do have a Foliopic website but I haven't really worked on it for ages.

The general form of the message is as below. I have replaced the actual details with descriptions of what appears in the email between the apostrophes. The random letters description means the letters are like this:

In your opinions would these emails be genuine enquiries or are they something more sinister and something to be deleted?

If you get a lot of spam it may be useful to install the likes of mailwasher. I've used it for many years. There is a free version here.
