To all:

Engloid passed this information to me and thought it would be good to share with everyone

Thanks, Engloid!

I get about 2 junk emails a month, and they don't come through despammed.com, they are where a spammer has gotten my main address somewhere.

If your despammed account starts to get junkmails, you can change that name or delete it and make another...without changing any info with your ISP.

Also, when posting your email address anywhere it's going to be public, it's good to write it as EngloidATdespammed.com or something like that so that the spambots that search the web for email addresses can't pick it up.

Junkmail is a big problem for many, but with the right measures, it can be greatly reduced.

And it's good to see the board picking up. Thanks for your work.

Thanks,
Engloid
