I still have "fuel" in my SC account, and would like to continue using it.

Today my ISP -Alice- let me know that unfortunately in their new Webmail there is no option to add trusted email addresses -as was possible in their previous Webmail version. And using MailWasher to forward spam to SC I get the message that "The SMTP server cannot or will not send the message (etc.)", and below that appears my SC email submitting address. I suppose my ISP's spam filter reads "spam" in the address, and "thinking" it is spam, blocks it.
In the old Webmail I had added my SC email address under "trusted addresses", and the reports were submitted to SC.

My ISP advised I use another mail host for that now.

I just posted on the MW forum asking if by adding a -still to be made- Gmail account address to MailWasher, as well as to my Opera mail, and changing my address on SC account also to that new one, I could still keep my old address, but have MW report spam to SC using that new added address.

I guess that is possible. I would have to get the WM Pro version -the free one only allows 1 address- and have SC send the confirmation request emails to me via that new address.

On the other hand, I wonder if I could report spam I get via my current address without the use of MW Pro to SC via a new still to get Gmail address. I have never used a different mail host besides my ISP's, but I have a Google account.

Thank you. That was fast. I saw 2 people were reading this topic, you and myself, so I did not log out, but waited a while and refreshed, to see if you had answered.

What free email service do you recommend that uses SMTP? Does Gmail? Or would you recommend another one?

PS:
I just found this info, and see what I can do with it, although I don't fully understand it yet, this being new to me: http://lifehacker.com/111166/how-to-use-gm...our-smtp-server
