How do I SPAM bomb a company?

I just got hit with over 600 emails from the same company. I want some revenge. How do I send all those messages back to them? Without sitting at my computer all day?

KV -- depending on the laws in your state, this may be illegal. I am not sure that DVDTalk may not have some liability issues concerned with this post as well.

Suggest you go a newsgroup search if you are interested in pursuing this further. Thanks!

Rather than spam them, why don't you take legal action? Also - good luck attacking a merchant website...

Well, if you can figure out a valid email address for that company, just use a "Message Rule" that automatically forwards any email you get to that email box.

Excellent. Thanks.

It is a legit company with customer service emails, etc. but this is the second time that it has happened to me.

I would raise some serious hell, that is just unacceptable.

Why type of company is it?

Alternatively you could download a Macro program and just set it up so it continually sends emails while you're sleeping.

This might help - I got this email spam today. I used the remove feature and a few minutes later I got another one. Bastards. I'd just set up a message rule with their domain as a blocked sender and be done with it.
