Ways to Minimize Spam in your Emails

Nov 22nd 2010 at 8:59 AM

Here are few ways you can do:

1. Don't Make It Public.

If you have posted your email somewhere online where it is publicly available it is likely to be picked up by simply doing a search on search engines. If you are to subscribe to something online have a separate email for it, even if they say they have anti spam policy its easy for them to share your email to anyone without you knowing.

2. Learn to Use Spam Filters

Whether we like it or not spam can easily get into our email. With spam filters available on popular email providers we could minimize the number of spam we receive. Learn to use it, I personally use gmail and I can filter spam emails and goes directly to trash.

3. Use Disposable Emails

If you are unsure or have doubts of the things you are signing up for online try using disposable email. I usually expires in 24 hours. Use it wisely.

4. Make Your Email Unique

Add special characters, if you use it in chat rooms change your chat name making it different from your email. I find yahoo chat rooms are unsafe and spammers can easily get to your contact information.

5. Do Not Open Spam Emails.

There are programs that can track if the email you sent is being opened or not. If the spammers use it they will know that your email is working and the email they sent was opened.

Interestingly, though, not sure if it will work really well.

Hi Siamak.If you are trying to avoid spam which I think can sometimes be caused by subscribing or signing up to different marketing offers. Even if they say that they will not share your information, you really don't know. (Not every offer though in fairness to fellow marketers but there are some)There are also things when you might want to get an information but you need to fill up a survey or anything before you can get that information or download it which in some cases is not worth it. With that in mind I thought I could use disposable emails to confirm that I have subscribed to them and I can get what I want. Now to use it wisely you must choose which subscription you will be using it.
