Default Re: Flickr sent me an email but doesn't recognise my address ?

I hope so, but not counting any chickens.

I think tech firms like to retain email addresses even when you have deleted your account or unsubscribed and in some cases they probably get sold on.

Xmarks is shutting down in a couple of days and accounts are being deleted, they say, but it's a pound to a penny that LastPass will stlll needlessly hang on to our addresses.

I also ponder sometimes about all the old passwords that might be floating about the ether from supposedly deleted accounts.

TalkTalk once "lost" my registered email address that I needed to access My Account and had to create another for it.

I haven't asked them if they can delete a secondary one that has been spammed out to the point where it is no longer usable.

Fortunately, I don't have such spam problems with my gmail accounts.

Here's the latest from Yahoo, from a different respondant this time.
Looks like they are ducking out of the issue now.
To add insult to injury they have sent me a survey !!!!
I am sending a complaint to the ICO.

Complaint sent to ICO.
Fairly easy to do on a downloaded PDF and sending by email.
Fingers crossed !

I realise that this ongoing complaint must be a nuisance for you rufford155, but I'll look forward to seeing what happens next!
