    Received from my hosting service yesterday;
    Turns out the package included a catch-all mailbox on by default, though it's an address I haven't used for years, since in my early innocence I let it fall into the hands of the spambots. And the mailbox was chock-full of spam built up since I joined this host three years ago.

    Now the server space is down to 168 Meg and

    You mean, you didn't want a longer penis for the last three years?

    They'd think if you didn't reply after the first 4,000 emails, you might not want it.

    I love spam mail.

    I've had 20-30 a day for the last four years on one account alone.

    Have you taken anyone up on the bigger wang or boobs? :p

    And that is why I have throw away free email accounts that I use each time a company wants my email address and a actual private email address only close friends and family has.

    I deleted the lot yesterday without counting, but since then (Sat 8.06pm) and before finding the blackhole option (Sunday 2.37pm, 18½ hours later) I've had 214 more. Nearly 12 per hour, 280 per day.

    Ouch, i don't get many at all, hardly any with googlemail, and no more than 10 a week with hotmail, maybe i'm one of the lucky ones.
    Looks like MensHealth have some obsession (11 emails just there) with you though cpemma.

    that is insane... my old Yahell account was nearing 6000+ messages thanks to endless spam. I love yahell's blackhole for storage.

    Right now, im using a private email for friends and family, and i rarely get spam. Only get it when my friends msn gets hacked.

    With my yahoo account I hardly ever get spam, maybe 1 spam per 2 weeks


    With AOL (I do not like AOL, they spam so much when you open there browser) I get spam every day

    heh, most of the stuff would go to the "Hell" folder (spam folder)
    but there was a lot of it in the Inbox as well. What I think was funny is I got a few saying that someone was intrested in a business proposition. Those Nigerian scam artists must think us americans are really dumb.

    I just enable spam filtering in Cpanel and let it do its work :D

    I also create one email forwarder for each website I visit, and forward it back to my main email account, which is an address I never actually send email from. Works a treat. Someone sends me marketing email, I just delete the forwarder, and it blackholes :)

    I use GMail for all of my email, the spam filter is fantastic and only about two spam messages a month manage to get past it. You can even host your domain's email directly with GMail you know :)
