How to Limit the Amount of Spam in Your Mailbox
How to deal with spam in you inbox.
1. Look at your messages in your inbox and see if you can identify any spam emails without opening it.
A majority of spam you receive you can be identified by the title or the sender. Do not open it. Spammers love to share a valid address. If you open a piece of spam it alerts the sender that it is a valid address and someone there will open anything. The saying “Curiosity killed the cat” could not be more true when dealing with spam email. Not only are you giving spammers the green light to rain spam down on your inbox, your may expose your computer to nasty viruses.
2. Once you identify a message as spam mark it as spam and delete the email if it is not deleted for you.
Once you mark an email as spam your email provider will send any emails with that address directly to your SPAM folder.
3. Do not unsubscribe from spam emails
Unsubscribing to spam will only cause more spam emails in your inbox. You are alerting the spammer that they have a valid email address and the user has opened spam in the past.
If you have subscribed to a legitimate email list from a reputable company and you no longer want to receive emails from this company you can unsubscribe to from the email list with out triggering additional spam.
