[NTLK] [OT] mobile me users - increase in spam?

I can't say that I have or even use this particular service.  But with
any email address there exists this danger.  And sadly nothing can be
done about it except to either set filters to only allow certain people
to actually get though on that address or to change your email address.

I have a few addresses that spammers often use like this and since I
can't change the address, I just filter them out.  But some addresses
can get over 100 spam a day.  Usually though after a few weeks or months
they stop using it and go on to another one.  But on a cell phone, this
would be difficult and expensive if you don't have good filters you can
put in place.
