I was jesting but I know how much extra emails can be a pain. I actually like the emails from Amazon, I generally only look for something I actually want and the friendly reminders are just the right frequency and I sometimes buy because of them.

I have an Ebay account but don't search their much and don't log in when I search. Maybe that's a solution?

Go to your account settings, communication preferences, scroll down to promotions and surveys, and uncheck anything you don't want.

Ebay, stuff and general crap go to Yahoo email.
Work stuff goes to Gmail.
Personal, finance and family go to ISP. I also use Mailwasher to get rid of any crap which might it's way through.
