Fighting and Tracking Spam

February 18th, 2007

A friend of mine recently pointed me to SpamGourmet which helps in the fight against and the tracking of SPAM or unwanted email. It works by allowing you to create multiple disposable email addresses. There are many sites that provide disposable email addresses but Spam Gourment goes that bit further.

Take this example:

For example, if your user name is “spamcowboy”, and BigCorp wants you to give them your email address (on the web, on the phone, at a store – it doesn’t matter), instead of giving them your protected address, give them this one:

frombigcorp.3.spamcowboy@spamgourmet.com

This disposable email address will be created here the first time BigCorp uses it (you don’t have to do anything to create it), and you’ll receive at most 3 messages, forwarded to your protected address. The rest will be indelicately consumed.
