Default Email Web Bugs - Whats The Best Solution

After reviewing this forum and looking into the ways that ebay track and trace you I have looked for option to limit this.

Webbugs via images seem to be a way that they track you and confirm that a email address is still in use and the IP address.

possible solutions that i have read are as below has anyone done this or have any suggestions.

1) to go offfline when you read the email so that no information can be sent back ( is this reliable)

2) change the settings of the email account so that you have all email in a plain text format.

3) which is 100 % secure is not to read and delete any messages associated with a suspended account.

I have 3 paypal accounts and I checked within the profile and non are linked to any ebay auction account, if I recived a payment through to one of these accounts and go into the email and copy paste the address from the you recived funds email, is this likely to link me via a web-bug?

I think to be 100% safe you need to get rid of the email account, change the password to something you won't remember so you don't access it by accident either. Sometimes you forget and then it may be too late. Better safe than sorry!

You can disable images from showing and you'll be okay. Though it's probably best just to leave the account alone and move on.

You can set all the messages to plain text in Outlook express.

If you are afraid of an accident maybe you should go offline as you said.

That's why I am going to do now.
