I've had my email account for years, and I get 10x more spam than valid messages - but the spam goes to the spam folder and I just check it periodically (for something valid that may have been misdirected) and delete the rest.
Mee too!!!

Re: Dating/hookup email

NEVER click on ANY LINKS in any emails. Even if you think it came from your own mom!

If you get a serious email, like from your credit card company, the ONLY way to be sure is to turn your credit card over, dial the 1-800 number on the back of it, and ask "are you guys trying to reach me?"

Re: Dating/hookup email

This is a very commonly asked question. I found the answer. I did my research and by that I mean, I called and or emailed a lot of these dating sites. Out of 11sites i reached out to , i received 3 answers. And all 3answers were pretty much the same. 9times outta 10 the dating sites receive his email address once he has registered or created a profile. It takes just one time for him to register at one site & then the emails come pouring in. Eventually they'll slow down & fade away. Unless he creates another acct.
However, if your husband has a social media account(s) (eg twitter,facebook) where he is following or friends with porn accts, nude accts etc often dating sites will pop up on the screen and one click registers u half way. If he opens one email received from a sating site it'll register him half way.
The sad part about a majority of these free dating sites are that nobodys information is verified. In fact, I registered to a couple sites trying to find my husband & its hard to do when your not verified, ur not required to post a profile pic etc. And u can creat any name as a user name.
And last but not least...they have sites designed solely for husbands and wives who just wanna have a sexual encounter w/no strings attached. I found out the hard way that my husband was in fact registered to several ACCTS.
If u have ur husbands gmail acct information u can easily login into Google (be sure to no his settings prior to logging in bcs he may hav his acct set up to be notified every time sum1 signs in) and look at ACCTS linked to his acct, and if your husband is anything like mine he saves his passw0rds on Google for easy & quick login. so u click on the little eyeball next to the acct and it will show u every password he saved to every acct he has linked to google. U can also look at his Google activity. Sorry iPhone users...this only works with Google.
I guess its safe to say that we have since enrolled in marriage counseling. I hope I could help

Generally this is an excellent way to exponentially INCREASE the amount of spam you receive along with a boatload of computer viruses and malware.

Otherwise your advice is spot on.

Re: Dating/hookup email

If you use Gmail, turn on Priority Inbox, label your important correspondents as such, and mark any junk that gets thru as spam...problem solved. I get tons of crap I never even see. Clicking "remove me" links (or any link) just verifies they've got a live e-mail address that can be sold.
