Abstract

Using a WEB Services to host your email address and providing recyclable outside reference to prevent or stop spamming. The user will register his or her email address with the "eMe" service. Then, for every site the user wants to provide an email address for future communication, he or she will have to register that site under their "eMe" trusted site. An automatic reference, like “@eme.com” will then be generated to provide a safe but renewable valid email address to enter on that site. The site can then communicate using that safe email address and the "eMe" service will act as a hidden relay for the user by forwarding the email to the actual email address of the user, remaining unknown by the site to prevent SPAM activities.
