Didier..... I once had a free email account.  I set up the account, and in 
the time it took me to go look at my mail, ( What, 20
seconds?) I had 6 spam messages.  There were several hundred the next day.

Never used that one again.......if you do not pay for it, they have to get 
revenues from somewhere.....

I have a rarely used Gmail address and only my business partner knows it, I 
have not published it anywhere, but recently got 2 spam
mails on it from people selling real estates in Honduras... how could they 
know the address - probably by generating randomly names
- strange...
