Account preferences

Email Aliases: This is a really neat feature. An email alias is a pretend email address. Messages to an alias address arrive in your main .Mac email account, but your real email address remains private. For instance, let's say you want to buy something online but you fear they will sell your email to every spammer on the face of the planet and you'll get hundreds junk mails a day. Use an alias address instead; after your order arrives, deactivate (don't delete) the alias until next time you need it. While it's deactivated, you won't receive any mail at that address.
