    :)Hi Bethrezen! I assume that you are on a limited budget and would prefer something free? As long as you don't have attachments more than 500KB then try www.ziplip.com. Their business philosophy is to provide great freeware accounts as their main means of advertising, ie by word of mouth. There's no spam, no ads at all, and your privacy is assured. Check them out. I have a ZipLip account too.

    I just followed Prince's advice and got a ziplip account.Registration was easy.I am also going to dump my hotmail account.I know that there are security problems with mail systems like yahoo and hotmail.But yahoo does a way better job of spam filtering than hotmail.Ziplip is a secure outfit,they filter and screen for you.Thanks again Prince.

    Spammers are frequently using the "mass-bombing" method with Hotmail accounts - they'll put a word; two words; together, and then add numbers after them...etc.

    Basically, they are sending e-mails out to hundreds or thousands of addresses - and waiting to see which ones don't bounce back :doubt:
