I don't use the email for emailing purposes, just for MSN messenger. So go on, and add me to your list! The "sunair727" part of my email is pretty self-explanatory.
For email, I use my yahoo! address as I think Yahoo! email is much better than hotmail. So far I have avoided SPAM, and if I do get any, I block the address STRAIGHT away, tell them at the bottom of the email in fine print that I don't want their freaking junk mail, and I report it to Yahoo! Spam Guard. Usually it works very well.

I used to have a Hotmail account for "official" purposes, i.e. for email conversations with anybody except my friends (my main email address is only known to them and my family), but after I got totally spammed, I switched my secondary address to GMX. No problems with spamming since then...

Today, I'm more careful to mention my hotmail to everybody nowadays, 'cause I've recieved virus attachments to mails several times, and the only "official" place of my mail-address have been in my user-profile here on a.net (today, I only have hotmail to the "contact"-link of my a.net-photos).
Any other user, who have recieved multiple virus-mails?

Mine is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Made it many years ago and as I wanted to keep something short and related to aviation, Alpha1 would be the first to come to mind. But just being someone out of ordinary rather just another callsign I chose bravo I don't know why. Also Alpha1 seems to be somewhat towards arrogant side and a bit unrealistic (not directed towards Alpha1 who happenes to be a member here, this is what I though about Alpha1 for me years ago when I was not aware of you). And then speaking bravo__ in my mind the number 45 came to mind and here we are. Since then I have gone for bravo45 where ever I signup. Lots of spam here. But couldn't get bravo45 on yahoo so I am sticking to hotmail. Second choices were victor, sierra and oscar, couldn't find any of them with different 2 digits on yahoo.
This thread reminded me of the memory that made bravo45 sound and look like so much like me.
