I don't THINK so! Let the spam roll thru their system. Looking like it's time to slowly wean away from those accounts. But for now, this is one of my main personal accounts and I'm going to prune that info off what I'll paste before, but give you guys the hackers' websites so you can indulge in any retaliatory actions you care to:  Twisted Twisted Twisted

Needless to say I am NOT paying AT&T to remotely screw around with my machine when they don't block this crap themselves as part of their service. Instead, they're going to mark MY address as spam. Thanks for nothing, useless monolith! I have GOT to find some competition in this town. With no TV, I hate to give up internet as well.

I stopped using my hotmail account due to the ever increasing amount of spam that finds it's way through their filters.

Only spam I get on my gmail account is from Google. LoL.

Now my comcast account. has never been given to anyone. So the only mail I get there are the monthly statements and
"Rip-you-off" per view highlights BS.

I set up an account at NetAddress (usa.net) back in 1995 (when it was free) and use it for newsletters, contests and any other non-human use.  They have a great SPAM filter as I rarely get any spam in my main inbox.  I look in the junk mail section periodically to make sure something didn't get there by mistake and it's filled with all kinds of crap.  I think it costs me around $20 or $30 per year now.  I've kept it around because of the great spam filter and I've had to use it to get into accounts that hadn't been visited in years and forgotten the password.

*squeek*

my advice......ditto to the gmail. on top of their spam filtering abilities, I've become rather attached to the way they group your email responses, as well as their ability to "tag" emails for easy filtering...

I have 5 HellSouth email accounts. They'll give up to 10 + a website, but I'm not about to give them access to a site.

Think I'll start rolling accounts, credit card notices, etc to gmail.
