Spam Fighting Tips

The following steps will probably not eliminate all spam, but they will help reduce the amount.

Never Reply To Spam

To visit the website or buy the product of a spammer is to encourage the practice and to reward them for being pest.

Never Reply to their invitation to removed from the mailing list

 It usually says that to be removed from the mailing list you should reply to the email with the word remove in the subject box. Do this and you will receive more spam. Many spammers just send out blanket mailings hoping that the address belongs to someone. If you reply they know they have an actual email address and you will be added to more list.

Do not send an irate reply to the sender

Spam is often routed through the email addresses of innocent people and they donít need the hassle. Also, even if the reply reaches the spammer all you did is inform him that yours is an active email address. He really doesnít care that you are unhappy

Obtain an alternate email address.

An alternate email address will not eliminate spam but it will keep it out of your primary email program. You can obtain an alternate email address from Yahoo or Hotmail or one of the other web based email accounts on the internet. Use this address when ever you register for anything on the web or participate in User groups or Newsgroups. In fact use it anywhere when dealing with people or companies you are not familiar with.

Use your alternate email address when filling out entry forms

 or other advertising type material that you fill out even when not on the computer. For instances, in cases where you buy from a mail order house.

Avoid signing guest books on websites

Spammers seem to find these guest books and add all the signers to their list. If you feel you must sign one use your alternate email address.

Be very careful of who you give your real email address to:

Of course give it to friends,  individuals and business people that you trust. Just be wary of giving it to businesses that you donít know. There have been many cases of companies promising not to reveal email address or to sell their email list, but  do so despite the promises.
