E-Mail Alert

If you get any E-mails purporting to be from me that claim to concern "Home Warranties" or "Hey Babe" just delete them. They are all coming from AOL accounts albeit not my actual address.


Given the termination of the AIM service on January first, and how little use AOL is other than as a spam aggregator, I'm gonna end the account next month. Perhaps there'll be a final New Yea's Eve Chat with some AIM friends.

While we're on the topic, does anyone have any recommendations for non-Google affiliated Email providers?

1 I still have a Yahoo mail account. I really should check it since I started sending my Groups mail to it....

2 For myself I've found owning my own domain is not nearly as much hassle as you might think. Hosting fees are relatively reasonable for somebody else to manage the hardware/software.
If you own the domain, you also essentially get an unlimited number of throw away e-mail addresses. I use that to create a specific e-mail address at any given site so that if a spammer gets hold of it (e.g. somebody hacks the list of addresses), I can just block any e-mail sent to that address from even being delivered without fear of missing something important. That's kept my spam down to a low trickle for many years.

3 I do that as well. I have them all redirect to the e-mail address I actually use. although it wasn't until later I started making them more descriptive of the site I used them on.

4 How  are we going to know your e-mail? It took me years to find your AOL address.
