netmails.com is currently heavily used by german spammers. I received
about a dozen mails during the last two days containing
netmails.com-links :-(

The .exe-files available for download there are so-called dialer, which
connect you to some obscure service using a 0190-number (which is similar
to a 0900 in the US), which is usually charged at approx. 2 EUR (2$) per
minute. There were even dialers charging you 50 EUR or more...

So my current advise is: Discard everything containing links to
netmails.com - it's spam anyway.
