I just checked an abandoned

I just checked an abandoned POP account I haven’t looked at since November of last year. There were 154 emails, all spam.

This is an account that I never gave out to anyone – I once had my email forwarded there from my pobox.com account. The pobox.com account is now forwarded somewhere else and gets very little spam. I have no idea how anyone got that address, since it’s a fairly obscure domain (xtrabox.com) from a provider of POP3 accounts rather than a well-known ISP domain.

Some of the printable subjects were things like “Boost your windows reliability” (I don’t think so… I don’t even use Windows).
