Using E-mail and Chatting Online Safely

In addition to the practices you can follow to protect yourself while surfing online, you can also do things to protect yourself when you use e-mail or chat online.

Keep a “Clean” E-mail Address

If you've received spam or unwanted mail at your e-mail account, you understand why it might be nice to have an e-mail address that isn't a target for those things. To accomplish this, keep one side e-mail (one of the free e-mail addresses from Hotmail, Yahoo! or the like) to use on newsgroups, chat rooms, surveys, and other public spaces on the Net. If you have a Web page that mentions your e-mail address, use that side address on your page.
