I've gotten a ton of emails to my hotmail account that never contained "tobefirst," just a bunch of things similar to tobefirst.WildCowboy said:I'm not sure what you're asking. If your e-mail address is misspelled, it won't get through to you anyway, as your ISP won't match it to your address.
Okay, but those are also addressed to you. Maybe in a BCC field that you can't see, but your address is in there somewhere or it's through an aliased mailing list somehow. My point is that using the actual address is not really a good way of determining whether or not the message is real. You'd have to set up filters that would check the To, CC, and BCC fields for your address, but that would still not let any mailing lists you're subscribed to get messages through.tobefirst said:I've gotten a ton of emails to my hotmail account that never contained "tobefirst," just a bunch of things similar to tobefirst.
