Default Oh, no. The Spam has found me.

I just got 126 emails, almost all of them 'failed delivery' notices for email addresses that don't exist, at samatkins dot co dot uk. Some are even in Spanish. This is not fun.

Ooh, and conveniently, among those is an email from 'Steve' recommending an anti-spam thing, also addressed to a fake email address.

Oh, and some sort of appointment notification for a car showroom.

I haven't gotten a single spam email in a few years... At least, at my Hotmail address, anyways. Gmail, however, gets around 200 a month. But it's all caught by the filter, so meh.

I've literally got about 800 spam e-mails on my Hotmail account that I'm too lazy to delete (since it would take FOREVER).

It's really odd... I give out my e-mail address publicly every now and then, just accepting the fact I'll get some spam, and I very, very rarely get any...

It's kind of the same way with me. I mean, I get some spam, but never in my inbox.

It's really weird. I never get spam, except that once every several months or so, I get spam, and it's the same thing each time. It's really annoying, because it's extremely offensive stuff. Even saying what kind of spam I get would be Hamumu inappropriate.

Maybe spam is building up for you somewhere, waiting for a sign of weakness from your email server's filter. And when it finds one, BLAMMO! Instant spampocalypse.

Back on topic...

I tend to have an on/off problem with spam. Luckily, it's not affecting me at the moment. Using a different e-mail address for every mailing list helps me track who's given my address to third parties.

Ingenius, but that sounds like you would potentially need a lot of email addresses.

Hooray for Garfield! ...Oh no! I left food out back at home, and my cats are hungry! Eh, I'll likely make it back in time, since they're uber lazy. *Imagines them crawling on floor*
