How To Stop Spam

There are ways to stop spam without using a Spam Filter if you don't want to invest in one. However, using a Spam Filter will guarantee the best results since your email address will 'leak' on the internet somehow. However, following these suggestions, you will be able to reduce the number of emails you receive without using a Spam Filter.

Never respond to Spam

If you respond to an email that is spam, the only thing that you will be doing is letting the sender know that the address they have sent it to is a valid and functioning address. Doing so, will only increase the amount of spam you receive. So you want to make sure that if you get spam, to never ever respond. We know that you want to unsubscribe to their emails or you want to let them know that you don't want to receive their emails any more, however, doing so will only prove your address is a valid one.

Don't post your email address

Even though you may have a web page or web pages that you own, you should try and avoid putting a link to your email address at the bottom of the page to be contacted from. There are programs that constantly roam the internet looking for email address and they look at the 'mailto' address of the link tag. There are ways to get around putting your email address at the bottom of the page. For example, you can physically write out your email address in plain English. Writing your email as 'yourname at domain dot com' rather than 'yourname@domain.com' will provide you will some protection from the 'harvesting' programs that search the web.

Have two separate email addresses

You can sign up for a number of email address through various web hosts such as: Yahoo, MSN, hotmail, etc. so you should take advantage of that. If you want to post comments in a newsgroup, or in a guestbook on somebody else's web page, start a public email that you use. Keep a private email that you only use to email friends, family, and anyone else whom you speak with on a regular basis. By keeping these two email addresses separate, you will be able to have your personal emails separate from the spam that comes in.

Don't freely give out your address

Do you constantly give out your home address and phone numbers? You should treat your email address just as you would treat any other personal information about yourself. If you think that something is a little sketchy, then don't give out your address. If you are at all concerned about what they will do with your address, you can check the privacy policy to read how they will treat your information.

Remember the rules...

  1. Never, ever respond
  2. Don't post it on your web page or in newsgroups or guest books
  3. If you really want to contribute to newsgroups and guest books have a public and private email set up
  4. Keep you information private
