    Ok! this is the best way to avoid spam i have tried it on my skool computers and my freinds computers and it works this is wat you do

    1) create a new email accouint with the most uniqe name possible like kazaa_lite_p2pyea@hotmail.com or jumpoffacar@hotmail.com

    2)be sure to save it or write it down on your notepad and stuff and open msn messenger and save it there

    3)tell all your freinds that this is ur new hotmail addy

    4) only give your addy to stuff like forums that u trust and big time websites like amazon and microsoft (of course) and dont give it to dumb small sites

    5) look at ur inbox for a week no spam will come because the people sending spam cant figure out your uniqe email addu

    if you have ISP email, and can use any name you like e.g. anything@vivitron.isp.com then when you use the email addy to buy anything etc, then use the company from whom you are buying as your email:

    ebay@vivitron.isp.com
    amazon@vivitron.isp.com

    this way, if you do get spam, you will know who gave out the address, and you can report them as sending out spam - as it is now illegal to do so - also you can block emails to that name from entering the inbox

    carefull with thatone, as it can easily be ripped of a forum........... make sure your email adress is always invisible to the forum viewers......

    and if you need a email adress to receive a signup mail, use mailinator
    great FTP site for awesome quality video clips
    yeah, you have to sign up, but its worth it

    Most of my friend&#39;s emails is spam. The real email I use is only know to the people I work with (and to "certain" friends).
