Still Getting lots of Spam, Phishing and such nonsense emails? The solution (imho!)

My email address with btinternet/openworld (either work) is in the traditional first name.surname format e.g. fred.bloggsATbtinternet.com. I stopped using that address after the BTYahoo account was hacked a few years ago***.

 

I probably receive between 5 and 10 of the rubbish email per day on average (which I delete when I look in that in box once a week.)

 

I do not receive ANY such nonsense at my new email address and I believe it's for a simple reason - I now have a phonetic version of my name, with numbers.

 

So using the example above Fred Bloggs might change his name to effbee.2016ATbtinternet.com.

 

Try it. Let us know how you get on.
