    My phone buzzed the other day and I got excited, thinking someone wanted to talk to me for once. It was from HM Passport Office.

    I get weird emails in my junk aswell.
    Some guy in nigeria believes in me and trusts me to hold onto his 2 million pounds. I just don't know where to keep it so I respectfully declined.

    Are you still using hotmail at this day and age?
    It's virtually same as laying down the welcome doormat to junk mails.

    Atleast nearly all go to junk so i never see it. Weirdly some of my Homerton freshers stuff has been going there so I may have missed a few inportant emails in the past.
    Im gna use this new cam.ac.uk one though.......!
    Anyway, i normally look at the subject of alot of my emails and decide whether to open it or not.

    The thing is, it's likely those guys sold your email address to other junk mailers and them selling to others, too..... That's why you're getting so many. And will get worse and worse.

    Don't use the cam a/c for everything.
    Set up one gmail a/c (better filtering system than hotmail or yahoo), and use it when shopping online and sending email to someone you're not 100% sure of or a company that may bombard you with mails for marketing purposes.

    It's practical too - it's easier to see when you've actually received an email you're waiting for if your icon just shows 1 or 2 instead of it changing from 4,452 to 4,453
