1. Use Your Email Aliases
Everyone who uses MobileMe gets a default email address ( One great feature of MobileMe is that you get to have multiple email aliases. This is great because you can make an alias for anything. An example would be to have a spam email address to give out to sites that make you register. That way you don't have to get a million annoying emails. You can also make one for your business or organization. All of the email aliases you create will show up just like a normal email, but you can disable or delete the address at any time. Great for keeping spam down.
