  1. I recall a thread earlier this year (?) where the possibility of using a
    From: and Reply To: e-mail address (i.e. not a legitimate one, but a fake
    one to deter spam) different from the legitimate one you register with, but
    I can't remember the advice provided. I can't find this thread using Google
    Groups, so can one answer my question above, please, or point me to the
    relevant thread ?

    Thanks,
    DS

    I've been using this yahoo.com.au address for a while now. Yahoo has
    recently improved its filtering service as well as its anti-spam
    software.

    It's also set up a new thing where you can use Eudora or other email
    clients to poll your Yahoo.com.au account to retrieve mail. In the past
    3 weeks that I've been using it, and after setting up and experimenting
    with filters, I've not received any spam. Yahoo seems to be doing a good
    job of killing it all. Only problem with downloading messages, rather
    than reading them via a browser, is that the client retrieves all mail,
    from the inbox as well as the junk mail folder where spam is tossed. So
    I've been forced to have all detected spam deleted on arrival to yahoo.
    The problem with this is that some legit emails could be seen as junk
    and they get deleted too. Yahoo said that it will consider my suggestion
    to block mail in other folders from being downloaded.
