Instructions

  1. 1

    Sign up for an e-mail account with an e-mail provider.

  2. 2

    Try not to use an e-mail address that is similar to another e-mail address, assuming you choose one that was initially unavailable. For example, if "livetowrite@emailprovider.com" is unavailable, don't choose "live2write@emailprovider.com."

  3. 3

    Make sure the selection to have your e-mail address put in the email provider's directory is rejected. (Note: Yahoo! is one of the more popular sites that puts your e-mail address in a directory, hence the reason why Yahoo! sends so much junk mail.)

  4. 4

    Be careful with sending forwards. Recipients of your e-mail may "Reply All" or send a message to someone else who may "Reply All."
