Hotmail Rules Change

This might be old news but came as a surprise to me.

Thanks for this notice Chris. I haven't used hotmail for years (and dropped yahoo just recently when a change in their policies pissed me off), but I have a few friends who do use it and have forwarded the notice to them.

Thanks very much Chris. I have hotmail because I got free internet access for 6 months when I bought a computer. I am totally unhappy with hotmail and MSN. If a company as large as Microsoft can't handle things the way they should be handled, I don't have much use for them. In fact, if I felt the way I do now, six months ago, I would probably have bought a Mac. I have received more spam in the last few days than I ever have. I wondered how they were getting my address.

Same here Ed, my hotmail is of this moment filled with 500+ pieces of junk no doubt including explicit porn. I get the occasional message saying the inbox overflow is sent back to its source so I keep it up to the brim.

Porn mail

I'm starting to dread the weekends when my mailbox is flooded with porn mail - I have never subscribed to anything that even remotely smacked of porn and yet every weekend, I get dozens of invitations to porn sites.

The thing that is most disturbing is that this x-rated stuff is being sent to the address that I usually only use when I'm dealing with a company that I would be proud to do business with. What a shame.

Seriously, I never get porn junk mail. It seems like everybody gets it but me. I wonder why?

Fighting Spam

I have a few things that I do to fight spam. In my personal mailbox, I only get about 1 piece of spam per week, so I guess it's working pretty well. (I attribute that one piece to some residue left over from before I started seriously trying to ward off spammers)

1. On my newsreader for newsgroup postings, my return address is shown as me@privacy.net. If someone gleans that address and sends anything to it, they get a nice little note bounced back to them... Go ahead and send some mail to it and see. Anyone can use the address.

2. In the sig line of my newsgroup postings is an address that really will get the mail to me, but its through www.despammed.com which is a forwarding service that filters spam. After it has gone through despamming, it shows up in my OE mailbox

3. I also use the me@privacy.net address for sites I have to register for when I'm sure I won't want to receive mail from them but they require an email addy to register or get info. This also cuts all of the opt out caca

3. For places I register where I might actually want to receive something from them and need to use a good address, but don't want it showing up in my OE mailbox or am afraid they will sell my addy or have a bunch of opt out stuff, I have a Hotmail address. It mostly collects Spam, but I check through it about once a week or so to see if there's anything legit there and delete the spam that has amassed.

4. For those very infrequent pesky things that do leak through all of that, I have my OE filters set to send certain words and phrases directly to my trash bin.

It sounds like a lot, but it's really easy to do and it cuts the crap WAAAAYYYYY down.
