    Yupp. Don't publish it anywhere and you will be petty safe.
    My main email address that I conduct personal and business correspondence
    from has received 5 spams in as many years (four of them last week all in
    one go).
    We have two other private email addresses in this household that never
    receive spam at all because they are not published on any web pages and
    are not used for usenet postings.

    For publishing I use another email address i.e. the one here; every time
    I use it a flood of spam arrives in that mailbox even with munged address
    <sigh>.

    No guarantee unfortunately, my home address has only been used for email
    to family, but I am now egtting daily spams for porn sites.

    However that can be usefull, I have published a number of spammers email
    addresses so they can have their mailboxes flooded.

    Believe it or not: but that one slipped right past me. I think I entered
    it once in the belief it would help s.o. reply to me via email and forgot
    to take it out again.

    Thanks for pointing it out :) <slaps forehead in exasperation>
