    e-mail/browser Privacy Issue


    I have an e-mail privacy issue and can't find a solution.

    I'd assumed that this was a Chrome issue and posted this question on a Chrome forum but received no replies. Maybe someone here can point me in the right direction.


    Occasionally after viewing an item on an e-commerce site, I subsequently get an e-mail asking if I'm still interested in the item.


    An example, I'm using Chrome 69 (Win 10 Pro 64) to view an item on the BestBuy site but decide not to buy it. Subsequently, I get an e-mail from Best Buy asking if I'm still interested. On Chrome, I'm logged into my gmail account but the Best Buy e-mail arrives in my default e-mail account (i.e. not gmail). I am also NOT signed into an account on the Best Buy site. This similar situation has happened on a few other e-commerce sites.


    I understand that cookies may be stored on my computer and can influence future searches or advertisements. However, it is disturbing that my default (non gmail) e-mail address is somehow transmitted to the e-commerce site without my permission.


    Can someone enlighten me about how this can happen and how I can prevent this privacy breach.

    I need a slick E-mail program!

    My parents are absolutely stonewall about keeping AOL. The best reason they can give me for keeping it is the easy to use E-mail interface. I ain't arguing, I haven't found anything easier to use, but it TAKES SO MUCH MEMORY! And so I'm thinking that if I can find something nice and easy to use, I might be able to get my parents to use it instead of AOL, and finally get the bloatware known as AOL off my computer! The requirements-
    • Must be easy to use
    • Can't be browser-based (so AIM mail, Yahoo, and MSN are no-no's)
    • Preferably compatible with AOL mail, my parents don't want to switch E-mail accounts
    • Can't be Mozilla Thunderbird...I tried it and it sucks in terms of multiple E-mail accounts, and it erased all my saved mail *Frown e-mail/browser Privacy Issue :(.
    Any ideas?
