AOL : Email account stealing and spoofing for dummies

AOL just made a few weeks a go a post on their official mail blog to explain to their users why and how they could be receiving SPAM from their own email address.
The post briefly explains how an email address can be stolen or what is spoofing and gives a couple of tips to avoid compromising his email address.
The readers of this blog won't probably learn anything new here, but I thought it was good pointing out this article as I am always happy to see an ISP evangelize its users.
After all, fighting Spam is a common responsibility between legitimate advertisers, ESPs, ISPs, Spam filtering tools, Blacklists and end users.
