I got my first website address in 1997. I almost got bob.com, but
networksolutions would not give it to me even though it was expired for a
year. Microsoft legal even offered to network solutions to let it go..but
they would not send the fax.
It should have been mine.
I spent a week calling about it to microsoft and left a message to a 'top
guy'. The next day it was suddendly given to the guy who owns it now. A
'friend' of microsofts.

Anyway...back on the topic.
My email has been the same forever.
On the old server I could, after filtering, get upwards of 2000 mails a day.
Not all junk mail is filterable due to work and stuff.

I just did my centos though..new server, updated the spam stuff...down to
less than 100 a day.
It is like being reborn.

So, it is possible with a heavliy used email address to weed out a lot of
junk through centos and spam assassin indeed.
I was highly impressed.
