The security of email acounts are probably all on power with each other. I tend to use hotmail for my junk, i.e. when I have to sign up for something on the net I use my hotmail. I have my own email with my ISP this is the one I use for close friends. So far in two years I have received no junkmail into my ISP account, because I am particular who gets it, however if one of my friends email accounts become compromised by a spammer then any addresses he will have will also be compromised. Hope this is of use.
