Many people struggle with the concept of how to stop spam. In a recent study, it was found that the average person receives 105 spam emails in their inbox every day. Does this remind you of what your email inbox looks like on any given day? Getting spam emails is something that many people have nearly come to expect but should they? Here are some easy to follow steps that will allow you to take control and stop getting spam emails.
How To Stop Spam
Stop Spam With An Alias
How often do you visit a website that requires you to provide them with your email address? Sometimes this is simply part of the joining process and other times it is required in order to merely view of portion of the website. They all say your email is safe and they won’t spam you. If you believe this, well you’ve probably already received a fistful of spam emails since you started reading this article. Start using an alias and stop spam.
Create a new email account and use it only when a website requires you to provide an email. Typically, you will only need to check this inbox when verifying that you provided a website with a valid email address. This account is going to quickly become filled with spam but who cares. That’s exactly what this email account is for.
Now that you have an alias email account it’s time to clean up your primary account. This is the account you will use for friends, family and work. Each spam email should have a unsubscribe link at the bottom. Typically, these links use a very small font in hopes that you will overlook it. This is tedious but unsubscribing to each sender now helps stop spam in the future.
Stop Spam With Filters
Most email applications have a basic level of filtering that can help you to avoid spam. Read the documentation for the email program you are using on how to prevent spam. If you need a more powerful spam solution you will want to check into a better option such as Spam Ninja.
