    Has anyone seen a web site capture your email address just by you visiting said web site? I got an email from a web site 5 hours after just pulling up the URL. Is this possible?

    I did not fill out a form or anything. I was just looking at their design. Am I going crazy and imagining this? Maybe I filled out a form in the past and have forgotten about it?

    Do you use an e-mail client like Outlook Express or Outlook?
