Sometimes they are not really using your mail to send. But the return mails are actually spams. Your the target, not the other way round. It works, it got you to read it.

:) dun worry about it

well u can prevent more from coming in.

Don't post your plain email on forums or any other sites. instead of posting like this hello@hotmail.com , you can post like this
hello [at] hotmail.com

those ppl use a bot known as "harvester" to dig email address and use their application to send spam.

Hai Webmaster and Edgar,

Edgar, I didn't watch porn. Used internet for research.

Webmaster, I normally used other e-mails to post and not the one spamed. So, how do you account for that?

I have no idea. ^_^.
I once did an experiment. I registered a brand new email.
and never ever revealed it nor use it in any purpose. Few months later, I check .. found out it was full of spam mails.

but another case I know. some websites do sell emails they accumulated in their website.

Spam is a chain reaction!

That is quite true, my original gmail account was clean and fresh, because I created the account for personal contacts purposes, such as my family, until one day, out of no where I received like 5 spams, and from that day onwards, I keep recieving a lot of spams everyday, but thankfully, gmail spams filtering works quite well.

You have to check your spam folder occasionally, to make sure your private personal email were not filtered as spam.

It is hard to predict how you actually get the spam, most likely you have entered your email address into some private websites which do not held liable against privacy violation. So, it is always risky and possible.

There is another way of them doing it. When u send mass email. all the email contacts will be visible in the email header.

So best thing to do, use the "BCC" instead of "CC"
that way, it can be cloak.
