  1. I was receiving so much SPAM at the e-mail address I used for this
    group that I closed it.

    The new address shown in the message header is a bit bucket. See
    signature for changes to address.

    This may save you some spam, but in the long run, the new email addy
    will start collecting spam, again.

    At the University where I work, as soon as I got a new email addy, the
    very first day I started received spam. Upon querying the System's
    Administrator, I was informed that all email addresses are actually kept
    in db's which may occasionally be locally or globally published, so that
    scavenger programs still have access to new addys, despite the fact that
    they may have been barely used.

  3. I don't believe that e-mail addresses are published by the ISPs where
    the mailbox is located. Many are "harvested" from newsgroups like this
    one and Web sites that list e-mail addresses. Others are "guessed"
    using a dictionary search against common domain names. Still others
    are harvested by viruses that search through address books on infected
    computers. My domain is not common, so I do not expect to get SPAM at
    the new address until it is harvested in some manner.

    I will keep you posted.
