    i have a hotmail, yahoo and gmail account.... hotmail is for spam, yahoo is the main, and gmail used to be for business until my account was swarmed with e-mails asking me to buy viagara and make my dick bigger.... the spam filter doesn't seem to work....

    conclusion: yahoo works best....

    I've got 3 hotmail accounts for signing up for sites that I know will generate lots of spam. My yahoo account is my main account, and I have a gmail account and my university email for occasions where I need a more "professional" looking email (as I thought up my yahoo quite a while ago, so the address is a bit dumb).

    I use my Isp Verizon for my email. I don't play around with spam. I just send them a decompression bomb. Stops them dead every time. If they have a computer left after that, they won't be sending any spam with it. If i am being flooded with viagra ads ect and viruses, i feel i have every right to defend myself. I rarely get spam anymore and i'm not concerned with viruses as most of them are designed for Windows and Macs and i'm not running either.

    My main ones are Yahoo and Gmail. I also have a Comcast one but I only use it to sign into my account online and never check the email there. Sometimes if I want to register for a site and not give out my email I make up a new one on Live.com or GMX.com and then forget what it is. Then if I forget my password for that site I am out of luck because I can't remember which one I used and can't retrieve it. :redface:

    Gmail has the best Spam filter and I always delete them, in fact it says "Hooray, no spam here!"

    Agreed.

    I like my Yahoo account because it sends little notices at the bottom of the screen, including PMs from LPSG, but it's spam heaven and I haven't touched it actively in years.

    I have two G-Mail accounts. One is semi-anonymous and the other is my firstname (dot) lastname at gmail (dot) com. The second one is strictly business, though I have been giving it to very good friends for a while now. It's a bore checking all the different accounts regularly enough to keep them all active.

    My private Gmail account filters the spam almost perfectly. I get about 150 spams a day and maybe twice a week one will make it into the inbox.

    Yahoo and Hotmail are hopeless.

    My business site has some kind of super-duper filtered high-security encrypted blah blah system that I have no clue about and Kemil the IT Pirate guy maintains. It's better than the Pentagon's. I am sure it's way too much and I am getting raped, but it works and that's all I care about. It blocks all porn or sex or nakedness 100%.

    I have to use the neighbor's wireless account if I want to access this site in the office from my laptop. :biggrin:

    I have several. Lycos/mailcity.com was my first, hotmail, yahoo, gmx.com,gmail. Out of them all gmx.com & gmail.com are the most stable when it comes to spam blocking. They are both relatively easy to use.

    You may want to try Hush.com...
    Super secure, encrypted email sending. Very easy to use and I had virtually no spam in the years that I have used it.
    One must log in at least once every 3 week ( it may be more or less) or you loss the account.

    Here is a link to home page...

    Yahoo and Gmail, but I'm slowing moving everything to Gmail. I literally get 200+ spam e-mails a day on my Yahoo account. Gmail? About 2 a day and considering how widespread that e-mail address is, that is freakin' amazing.

    Gmail also has the added bonus of free phone calls which comes in handy.
