“"It'd be interesting to open email accounts with Yahoo/Google/Hotmail etc. and see how much spam you get without using them"”Indeed it would!
As part of the experiment, there is already a Hotmail account open which will have no link to any social network, but I have not opened accounts with any other providers.
As stated in my previous post, I already use GMail for my main email account and I know that not a lot of unsolicited email gets through, but for the sake of argument, I will open a new account with them.
Yahoo, is one of the email providers that I have had experience with before, but to be honest, I haven't even tried to log into that account for probably more than ten years.
All that I need are a few names... hmm...
Okay, I'm going to go with the following
As with all of the other accounts, I will set them up with details that are similar to my own.
*** The actual names have now been removed from this post. For an explanation as to why, please see this post here.
