I've finally done it...

The spam to content ratio on my painless-computing.com account, even with anti-spam software and other filtering measures (problem: I don't take the time to adaptively tune the rules) is just too high.

My options:

Use the Earthlink account I keep for use in the rare instances I need a dial-up account on travel. Advantages: webmail, poppable; disadvantages: I probably won't pop it--I don't think it's securely poppable or imappable; I might decide that it doesn't make sense to keep paying the expense and cancel it.
Use the Yahoo account: webmail, not tied to a for-pay ISP, decent adaptive spam filtering; disadvantages--attachment size limits, I might have to pay if my mail volume increases much
Use the cable modem account-associated account: advantages similar to Earthlink; disadvantages: might have to ditch it if I move...

Thoughts, dear friends?
