Re: [John Muir Trail] hacked email.
- To avoid your email getting hacked or to address a hacked situation, read this document (in our links folder):http://groups.yahoo.com/group/johnmuirtrail/links/_Links_useful_to_get_the_most_out_of_thi_001305821142/Set your email to 2-step verification if you can. Gmail has this feature. I'm not sure if Yahoo has done this or not. I recommend with a hacked account that you get a new email address, subscribe to this group via that new one (preferably it is one with 2-step verification turned on), then unsubscribe from the group(s) connected to your old (hacked) email account.Something easy to do with email is to have a forwarding email address (like I do, I pay $12 a year with pobox.com and it is a great forwarding service that weeds out true spam, with super rare false weedings, but it sends you a daily report of all weeded out email). I tell all my friends to email me at roleigh[at]pobox[dot]com -- the real email behind is is one I can change to another and I only then need to update the forwarding information at pobox.com. Pobox.com is great because I can say, never accept email from country xyz (there are only a select number of countries I allow email from). I rarely get spam in my inbox and with gmail the few times I do, gmail's own spam catch puts it in a spam folder. (my back end email is a two-step verification gmail account).RoleighModerator
