Want to know how to stop spam? This might seem too simplistic, but here it goes; Eliminate free email accounts from Google (Gmail), MSN (hotmail), Yahoo Email, and all the other free email accounts offered by the big search engines, portal sites or other free email providers.

Why do I say this? If you look at Spam statistics and where in general most spam email originates from you’ll quickly see that majority of spam originates from a free email account. These are often referred to as throw-away or disposable email accounts. If this is the case, why do the major search engines, portals, or community sites offer free email? They want to entice and keep users coming back to their sites. Get something for nothing.

If you get right down to it, all the major players offering free email accounts are the entities that are most responsible for the spam issues facing Internet users today. So on one side, MSN, Yahoo, and Google provide some great services, but they also contribute greatly to the spam issue today.

This is certainly a huge topic for debate with many nuances that make for heated discussion, but when you get to the core of where spam primarily originates from, it is free email accounts.
