Discontinuing an email address

  Channel 18:37 22 May 2005

Ihave a lineone email address that I used only for buying online, or for info from companies-newsletters etc.Since using it once on the Microsoft forum, it has attracted so much spam, that I no longer give it, and use a tiscali one instead.It continues to attract spam-about 15 letters daily, filtered by Norton Antispam, and I want to discard it. When I asked Tiscali, they weren't helpful.If I just delete it from Outlook Express, would that work ?(I assume when people change addresses frequently, they just stop accessing the old one.Is that so ? )I just use the computer at home.Thanks.

This has been discussed in the past. There is no way to delete the account from the server. Best thing you can do is delete as you say from Outlook Express and forget about it. Create a new email account and add this to OE. Just don't make the same mistake again.

That is what I wondered,so thanks for the confirmation.I certainly won't give out my address again !
