How To Easily Prevent Email Spam

Preventing 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 In Gmail 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. In Yahoo 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 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. © TopComputerDocs
