Don't Want Your Email Address "Harvested"
  1. Consider "masking" your email address.
    "johndoe@myisp.com" could be masked as "johndoe@spamaway.myisp.com"
     
  2. Keep your private email address private:
    • Use a separate screen name for online chatting.
    • Consider creating "disposable email addresses" for public postings in newsgroups or on websites, or for online purchases.
    • Consider using one email account for personal correspondence and another for public use.
       
  3. Use a unique email address, containing both letters and numbers.
