Yahoo’s anti-SPAM email move

MyWay has this link to a Reuter’s article about Yahoo’s newest anti-SPAM move. It allows a premium mail subscriber to create a “base name” and up to 500 variations. The user can create a “new” email address and give it out to whomever they like. If SPAM starts to show up, that one account can be shut down. This is similar to services like Mailshell and SpamGourmet and, when coupled with other anti-SPAM measures like Bayesian filters, can provide the most SPAM-free solution. I never give out my true email address except to people I trust — every other email address is one of my “traps”.
