I知 getting a lot of advertising in my e-mail, and I want to stop this.
this is a part of an e-mail I got:
>> You have signed up to get the latest news
>> for Ricky Martin.
I never did sign up, never went to a website even related to ricky martin.
What is this??????
I also got an e-mail from microsoft about a developers convention.
I did go to the ms website, but never subscribed to anyhing.
did I activated somthig as "autosubscribe" or something.
How do websites get my e-mail address and how do I change this?
I want to give them another address they can use, not this one.
I知 curious what else do they know about me (how do I prevent that) and how do they do it. A friend of mine told me it was a file that they accessed but I can稚 find it.
Any info on this topic is welcome.
