    Gmail is great for filtering your spam email, they catch most of it.

    I have an email account that gets no spam whatsoever.

    That's because I don't give it out. I sign up for sites I trust (photobucket, squidoo, hubpages, and some affiliates).

    The more you sign up for websites, the more likely you are to receive spam as some of them lie about their privacy policy. So be careful what websites you choose to sign up with.

    There really is no escape. Spammers usually work together and pass around other people's emails to other spammers. Just a vicious circle.

    Never leave comments on other peoples' blogs you don't know because usually it ask for your email and the owner of that blog might end up selling your email to spammers.

    ironically, most of my Hub mail goes to the spamfolder big_smile
    I have never understood why. If I change the settings, I might get penis enlargement spam ads though...so I guess I'll just have to contend ith the way things are....

    The ones I hate are those that have the dates like: 08/14/36 or 08/14/38 when today is 08/12/09 and always about 100 of these a day! Of course they end up in the spam folder, but to find those that somehow end up in the spam folder that I want to see I have to go through the spam folder.
    You would think with technology today that any decent email provider would be able to detect these types of email and disallow them.
