One time I was a school and good female friend of mine from China came
up to me in the hall crying. She was upset because of some emails that
she was getting with horrible images. She could not understand who
would send her something so evil! I sat down with her and looked at
it. It was the typical porno spam mails from a few years ago.

We set up a Google Email account, imported her email addresses and
told everyone about the new email. I then explained how these
slimeballs work, where they get the email addresses from and how to
avoid it and she was happy again.

The biggest source of my secret email address getting out is from
friends going to the, "send an email card" sites and sending me
something. Never send email to a freind through another site!

BTW, I have had 4 emails in one month make it past Google Emails spam
filter and into my in box. I get about 100 spams a day in the spam
box, but of late that has been down to about 100 a week. Nice.
