thanks to yuchahoo bouncing my good email, even after filling out and
submitting forms that lists.fedoraproject.org
and 5 other subscribed
to list are desired, and, also aggravating is that yuckahoo also marks
good emails as junk and sends them to their junk folder forcing me to
have to also pull emails that they _think_ are junk along to get my
good emails that they do not bounce, i missed first post of this thread,
so i will start with your post.
i agree 100% with your reasoning and maybe should have done so to at
start. exception being that when i first subscribed to bellsouth.net
i had no problems.
i have an other way that eliminates junk emails. extensive filtering
of all email i receive so that any emails that hit last filter for each
of my accounts. as such, any thing that hit 'Local Folders / Inbox'
using thunderbird email client, what shows up is either new emails
needing filter setup or is junk and after a using <j> on them,
thunderbird's junk filtering takes care of them.
i started filtering procedure during early inet days with netscape
when spam/junk was not a problem. with a few changes for spam/junk,
i adopted it into thunderbird.
even still, using an auto-delete name is best.
But you have to put a notice that makes you look like a douche in
your outgoing mail.
not true. to my belief, Tim's using name;
is best way to avoid messing with spam/junk.
once i start a new account with another isp and get all my desired
email senders, personal and public, notified of new addresses, i will
drop bellsouth, aka, att/yuckahoo like a hot brick and enjoy a totally
spam/junk free email life.
bellsouth/att will also lose me as a pots customer. B-)
