Security Tips

How to Avoid Receiving Spam

Think before you give out your email address. Try to avoid giving your main email address on web-sites, chat rooms, newsgroups or to companies. There are many places online that provide free email accounts. You could set up a separate account to use when signing up to an internet based service, or for online shopping. This way your main email address cannot be “harvested” by spammers. Avoid forwarding chain letters or petitions. These lists of addresses can be used by spammers.

Never reply to SPAM. This includes the notorious “click here to unsubscribe” trick. While it looks as if you are being given the chance to opt out of receiving further unsolicited email, in fact you will be letting the spammer know that your email address is active, leading to yet more spam being sent.

Don’t click it – just delete the email. You should also avoid trying to spam the spammers, you will end up being blacklisted as a spammer yourself. Blocks and Filters. You webmail has simple SPAM blocking features already. Have a look for the pages on “SPAM” or “Junk mail” in the help section of the webmail service. IF you are
downloading emails onto your PC, then email your internet Service Provider or search their website to find out about Spam blocking services they may offer. These are various software programs to help you block SPAM.
