I got my usual 2 baskets of spam today, and even one legitimate Email that was intended for me. Nothing for the last hour or so, since I read Rollys report. I last checked my Mexconnect mail about five minutes ago. I am using IE 7, the final version, not the beta version.
Because of all the spam on Mexconnect mail for the last few months, I am phasing it out for my personal use. I recently converted my 250 MB Netscape Email account to a free 2GB AIM account. I will probably start using it for my primary Email account.
If anyone is interested in getting a free 2 GB Email account that will work on the web or in Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, Incredimail, etc., you might want to check out this link. I had a free 250 MB Netscape.net Email account and they sent me an Email that they were discontinuing it, but It could be converted to a 2 GB AIM.com account. They are no longer enrolling anyone for the old Netscape accounts, or the new AIM accounts, but the same accounts using the AOL name are available for free. https://new.aol.com/freeaolweb/?promocode=814174&promocode2=805966 If you have an existing Netscape account, just log in to it, and you will get a page to convert it to an AIM account.
After I switched my Netscape account to an AIM account, I signed Doris up for an AOL mail account. In both cases, after the account was opened, we received Emails with links to download the AOL toolbar, homepage, etc. I donít want anything to do with AOL stuff, so I just ignored that. The Email accounts seem to be working OK anyway. Since they are IMAP accounts they import into Outlook and Incredimail, etc. OK.
I know this doesnít solve anyoneís problems with Mexconnect Mail, but personally I am tired of fooling with it. Because so many of us suddenly were deluged with so much spam a few months ago, It has to be pretty obvious that someone, somewhere has betrayed their trust and sold, or otherwise given up the list of Mexconnect Mail subscribers. It is an inside job. It always is.
