Email addresses from non-hubbers

    Just want to ask advice from more other hubbers here - I've been getting comments that ask for more information from non-hubbers. Then they leave their email addresses for me to email them. How do you respond to this type of request or do you respond at all? Any advice will be very welcome. Thanks!

    I forgot to add - those that leave their addresses want to ask for my help (like an advice, more information or something). I just don't want to email them because I don't want to expose my email address to somebody I do not really know.

    Thanks Eileen and bukan for your answers.

    Set up a seperate email for these inquiries.  Set it up in yahoo or other general email with a decent spam filter.  But make sure you have a good/up-to-date spyware program on your computer and if the inquiry doesn't ask pertinent questions, delete it.

      That would be my advice too, if you think the enquiry is genuine.  I've had one or two enquiries but the emails never sound quite sincere, so I've never risked replying.

    Thanks The Rope and Marisa. I don't think my spyware program is up-to-date sad. I just replied in my hubs (on one of them at least) that they can refer to the links I included, which contain more info than my hubs.

    You should also check out whspr!


    I haven't personally used it, but I've read good reviews.
