    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?

    there have been reports of spam from there.
    might be just one of them.

    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.
