    Does SuSE provide you with webmail? That's more than I knew.
    To be honest, I don't know much about public mail services anymore, since I run my own mail server at home. However, I strongly recommend against hotmail. I was using it before I got my own server stable, and you get spammed there. I remember before I quit using it, I was getting surely 40 spam mails per day, and I wasn't even using those email addresses publically.
    Nowadays, I do get spam even on this server on my own (how anyone got the address is kind of beyond me, but I have been part of several mailing lists and so, so maybe it's not that strange), but I filter everything through spamassassin, so it's really not a problem for me. It only lets through about one spam mail per month, so I'm not very troubled.

    Hey dolda2000,

    i was saw on the news recently that in some states in the usa, they have become so tired of spam that not only have they included sentences for it but that some states are employing high tech "bounty hunters" to get them.

    Anyway i hope that all spammers are sentenced, by just add to peoples troubles.

    I get about 35 spams a day, hotmails spam sucks.

    Bounty hunters? Are you sure? If that's true, then it's really cool! =)

    Hey dolda2000

    you said that you use your own mailserver well i wanted to ask, if you use your own mailserver can you make up your own email addresses like

    dolda2000@dolda.com

    or

    dolda2000@usc.edu

    so can you make up completely any e-mail address ?

    Yeah, well I know that, but I often want people to be able to respond to my mails, though.
