    I am also using a rediff account. I get almost no spam. You should be careful while using your email ID. It will happen even if you start a Gmail account (lesser may be). It is just like your mobile no. If you keep it lying around, you need to spend most of your time answering spam calls. To do with an email ID

    1. Keep more than one ID. One for personal use and other for general use. Email is completely free and Gmail, Yahoo and other providers do not restrict you on the amount of accounts created. Give personal IDs only to people who are very close to you.

    2. Do not post your email ID in any of open sites / forums. There are bots who can scan a million of pages automatically and collect email IDs which will be later sold to spammers.

    As for deactivating, you can simply stop visiting your account and use the address book to send your new email ID to your friends.

    rediffmail account is permanent account no way to delete. i have two in rediff and got no problem.
    there r two ways for avoid unwanted mails
    first forget ur account permanent

    2nd in rediffmail there is option of creating own folder under "setting option" . create one folder
    and move all address of mail that u does not want to open, to that folder. once u did it all unwanted mail goes to that folder

    If you send an e-mail to Rediff asking them to delete your account they will have to do that else they will be on the wrong side of the law. They cannot keep your data without your conscent. Deleting your rediff mail account may be difficult but it is not impossible. Talk to them.

    Happened to stumble upon this post.
    I just recollected that I too had a rediffmail account . It was lying unused for more than 6 months. Anyways, logged in to find that there are more than 1200 spam emails!.

    Google mail is the best when it comes to spam. Their spam filters work extremely well.

    Some email accounts can not get deleted and some give you an option to delete the account. I have not used Rediff mail I dont know for sure about the options.
