How To Easily Prevent Email Spam
Here are some tips on how to prevent email spam:
Never Post Your Email Address To Public Websites
There are email robots running all over the Internet collecting thousands of email addresses where those
addresses are public, so you should never post your email address to websites where people can see it.
Don't Make Your Address Scannable
When a website requires that you provide your email address, modify it. Examples: you (at) gmail.com
Do Not Unsubscribe From Spam Emails
Unsubscribing from spam emails by clicking the "unsubscribe" button the bottom of the emails will only
create more spam emails, because you're telling the spammer that your email address is valid.
Use Alternate Addresses
Create different email address for different purposes – one for ordering online, one for friends, one for
financial services, etc. Then forward those addresses to your main account so you don't have to check all
your alternate accounts. If you get spam emails from one of your alternate accounts, simple delete it and
create a new one.
Do Not Enable Pictures in A Spam Email
When you enable a picture within a spam email you're sending a message to the spammer that they have a
real address, and you'll get more spam. That's why pictures and graphics are disabled in most of the
unfamiliar emails you receive.
Blocking Email Spam
Most of the spam that enters Gmail is automatically blocked, sent to your spam folder, then deleted after 30
days. If you do get spam in your inbox, simply click the "Report Spam" button.
If you click the "Report Spam" button accidently, click the "Undo" button. If there's an email in your spam
folder that's not spam, click the "Not Spam" button.
Most of the spam that enters Yahoo is blocked and sent to the spam folder. If you receive a spam email in
your inbox, check the box next to it then click on the "Spam" button. You can also add spam email addresses
to your "Blocked" list.
In outlook there is a spam filter that will capture most of the incoming spam emails and put them in your
"Junk" folder. You can increase the level of spam protection by clicking "Junk," then "Email Options," and
setting the filter to the strength you desire.
In Your Mobile Device
It's not your mobile device, it's your email account that's the problem. You need to either delete your email
account and get a new one, or increase the level of security in your current email account.
