Junk mails not only spend a lot of time but also cause lots of disappointment and humiliation. What’s worse is that they can even cause damage to your computer through some viruses, trojans, keyloggers, and spyware. Phishing attacks are as well a common problem that most free web email users experience.
The first step in avoiding spam email is by using an updated anti spam filter specially made to switch the filtering duties to the spammer from the recipient. This generally intends to get acknowledgment from the sender. Spammers commonly do not risk to confirm that they send an email to the recipient while any genuine sender will absolutely compel to your confirmation.
The second step is to get rid of these unsolicited emails is through the use of alternate email addresses. Whenever you give your emails account to some suspicious websites, use only the temporary email and never give your personal email account to anyone whom you cannot rely on. You can register for any kind of emails accounts with any of the available free email providers.
Third, never publish your email address on any forum site or social networking site publicly. Share it only to the people you can surely trust like friends and relatives. Try to conceal your email with codes and protect your pages from automated malicious software. It is best to replace your email with contact pages on your website. You can also have an encryption code to conceal your email from automated spam bots.
Never use mailto tags on your website. It is very easy for spam bots to automatically get your emails account with such tags. You may use an image of your email address or put spaces between each letter of your email address where a spam bot can’t read it.
