Hello I have a domain name e-mail account that I have had for a bazillion years e.g. email@example.com. I run it on Windows Mail. I have had it for so many years and given the address out to god knows how many companies that it is now 99% spam. Should I just give up?
Other issues I have is that: 1. my mail server is BT Yahoo, so I have jujubean@BTYahoo.com and everything from here is fwd to my domain name. I don't give out the BT Yahoo address. This is mainly so that if we change broadband provider my main e-mail address doesn't need to change. 2. I cannot get my windows mail to sync on on my iphone, i.e. if delete a msg on my phone its still there when I open stuff in Windows mail, also if I load e-mail onto Windows Mail those e-mails disappear from my phone.
I also have a gmail account that I use for a few bits an pieces but not much.
I am wondering if I need a new account that I use for Shopping online and therefore all the spam goes there. What do I do about my domain account? Do I have a personal account that only friends and family have?
E-mail is not making my life easy at the moment, its mainly doing my head in. It shouldn't be this hard should it?
Get gmail to pickup mail from the other accounts and apply a label to say which account it is from (think it may add the label automatically). Then use gmail for everything. Phase out use of the other accounts by changing email subscriptions, email address in profile on mumsnet etc. Gmail will filter out a lot of spam plus has apps for android, ios, web interface, so you can access on any device.
