Nope, never!
And if I did, I could use MozillaThunderbird to kill it :-)

I've had an account with hypernet (bought out by orcon) for about 2 years and do all of my personal email business through it.
Never had spam!
Only give my email address to friends - maybe that helps?

I had an account with Paradise & Ihug and the last time I looked at the Ihug one it had over 1000 spam in it, unuseable. Paradise sent me about 30 spam a day, quite often there was no mail for me.
When I complained, they said that I would have to filter it my end, so I closed the account.

By contrast I have been with Orcon for 3 months now, and only got one spam, from Nigeria.
Both Ihug & Paradise seemed to be obsessed with my genitals :)

I have found Orcon to be helpful & cooperative in every way.

Never gotten spam with my Orcon account, and I've had it for about two months.

However, the useful thing with Orcon is that if you start getting spam, you can just close that email address and open a new one.

my families email address at xtra gets around about 4 - 6 spam emails a day. But I install IHateSpam and although they still come through i can say it is spam and it blocks the email address..or i can just block a domain name..but its pretty pathetic that xtra doesnt have spam filter! they have anti-virus protection and what-not..i mean they are the main competitor they should follow the crowd
