How to Safeguard and Protect Your Email Addresses from Spam?


Tired of receiving spam emailsin your Inbox? Wasted too much time identifying and trying to blockspam emails? Don’t grieve. Here’s how you can secure your personal email addresses from spam and unsolicited bulk emails (UBE).secure-email.jpg

email-sign.jpgConfuse the Spam Bots
One of the oldest tricks is not to post your email address in“plain” form online. Instead, you can disguise your email address bytyping it in a knotty way so that humans can still read and understandit, but bots cannot. For example, instead of writing “eric@gmail.com”,use “eric AT gmail DOT com”.
Use Disposable Email Address
There are many times when you need to sign up for a site whichrequires that you provide an e-mail address to send a validation e-mailto. Instead of giving your personal email address (and get spammedlater), try using a disposable emails, which by the way, are free.
Few of these which we find very useful and user-friendly can befound at 10minutemail.com, www.mintemail.com and www.guerrillamail.com.All these sites will give you a temporary e-mail address. Any e-mailssent to that address will show up automatically on the web page. Youcan read them, click on links, and even reply to them. The e-mailaddress will expire after a certain period of time, usually more thansufficient for the intended purpose.
yahoo-mail-logo.gifFancy a permanent disposable email instead? Then get it from Yahoo!AddressGuard which is part of Yahoo! Mail. It lets you createdisposable email addresses to use whenever you don’t want to give outyour real Yahoo! Mail address, but when you do think you’ll probablywant to receive what this source sends you—a receipt, or an invoice, orsome other valid communication. You can create many alternate addressesand access them all from your Yahoo! Mail account. If any of yourdisposable addresses starts getting spam, just delete that address.It’s that simple!
Never Respond to a Spam
If you receive an unsolicited bulk email (UBE) and suspect it’s aspam, never ever respond to it. Do not fall prey by clicking on theUnsubscribe link as this will only verified that your email address isindeed genuine! Just ignore these emails and trash them.
Identify Your Spammer Source (for Gmail users only)
Many of us might not know that, by adding a plus sign (+) and afilter tag to your own Gmail address, you can track which of the sitesthat you’ve given your address to are selling your email addresses tospammer on the net! To do this, just use the plus and tag every timeyou enter your address into an online form. The trick is to use thename of the site you’re visiting as the tag, so it’s easier to tracklater on.
gmail-logo.jpgSoif you are buying something from ABC.com, enter your email address asusername+ABC@gmail.com. Gmail will ignore the plus sign and everythingthat comes after it, so messages sent to that address will still maketheir way to you. But if that site sells your address to spammers, youcan easily identify it by looking at the Sent To address in the header.When this happens, you can use Gmail’s Create a Filter settings toblock and direct all future emails to Trash automatically.

How can I limit spam mail without closing account and opening another?


Don't Post Addresses Online- Never post email addresses online such as in message boards, forums or on websites for all to see. Spammers (and Phishers) have automated processes that can 'harvest' these. If you must post it, then disguise the format (e.g. john.smithATgmailDOTcom).
- If you receive a lot of spam, a web search for your email address may reveal whether it is posted anywhere online and you can remove it.
Avoid Common, Guessable Formats- The more complicated your email address, the less likely it will become a target for spam. Spammers use software that trys to guess email addresses and a commonly used format such as firstname.surname@company.com will be a greater target of attack than firstname1_surname1@company.com.
- Obviously, the trade-off is that your email address will not be quite as memorable or look as nice.
Limit Sharing of Addresses- The more you share your email address, the more spam you will receive, it is that simple.
- Never share your primary personal or work email addresses with those you don't know or trust.
Use 'Disposable' Addresses- Many stores and online services request email addresses for things like account registration, mailing lists and discounts. Set up an email address specifically for these cases, so you do not have to use your primary personal or work email address.
- When spam becomes an issue for this additional email address, simply dispose of it and set up a new one. Services such as Gmail allow you to check and send from different email addresses in one place, facilitating easy management of multiple addresses.
No Email Based Screen Names- If you participate in message boards, chatrooms, Twitter or similar where you display an on-screen name, don't use your email address before the @ sign as the screen name.
- Spammers will often take screen names and add common email endings such as @gmail.com, @yahoo.com and @hotmail.com, in order to guess legitimate email addresses.
Delete without Opening- It is often obvious from the subject line that an email is spam.
- Simply add the sender to your spam filter and delete the email without even opening it. If you do not open it, there is no possibility of the spammer being informed that your email account is active.
Disable Automatic Content Downloads
- Automatically downloading images or other dynamic content in emails might make them look nice, but can reveal to the spammer that your email account is active.
- As a minimum, turn off automatic image downloads in your emails until you are sure the email is trusted and not spam or a phishing email. Specifying to read messages in plain text only will add a further level of security, as all dynamic content will be blocked from download.
Don't Forward Spam- Be wary of emails from anyone asking you to forward the email on, such as petition, chain or joke emails. By forwarding these emails, you are effectively spamming others.
- In addition, these emails are used by spammers to obtain legitimate email addresses for spamming, as they contain the email address of everyone who has forwarded the message along with the addresses of everyone each person forwarded it to.
Never Reply or Click the Links- Clicking links, including the ubiquitous 'unsubscribe' link, in spam emails or replying to spam, will confirm to the spammer that your email account is active, resulting in more spam being received. It may also direct you to a website that contains malware.
- Never reply to spam and avoid clicking links in spam emails. Only click the 'unsubscribe' link for marketing emails you remember signing up for.
Never Purchase anything from Spam- Don't fall for products or services advertised in spam emails, no matter how good they may sound. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
- Buying something advertised in spam only supports the case for spamming and will likely increase the amount of spam you receive, as the spammers now know you are willing to buy.
Avoid Opting In- When purchasing or registering something online, there are usually one or more checkboxes allowing you to opt out of marketing communications or sharing of your information with other 'partners'. If you opt in, you may be opting in to a lot of future spam.
- Always read the opt-out messages with care, as these are cleverly worded to get you to opt-in. Some of them require either selection or de-selection to opt out, whilst others require a mix of selection and de-selection to fully opt out!
Read Privacy Policies- Always read the website's privacy policy before purchasing products or registering your details for software or services online.
- Understand how your email address may be used and whether they can share or sell it to other third parties, who could be spammers.
Use a Spam filter- Activate Phishing and Spam filters on your email account and in your Internet browser to help ensure you avoid receiving spam in the first place.
- Most reputable email service providers will have spam filters that you can turn on, some of which allow very granular policies to be set.
Report Spam- Report spam that does slip through the net to your email service provider or your company, as applicable.
- This will add the sender to their spam filters, identify whether spam filter policies need to be updated and will block future spam from that sender appearing in your inbox again. Reporting spam can also result in the spammer being identified and criminally prosecuted.
Keep Anti-Virus Software Updated- Ensure your anti-virus software is kept up to date and download the latest signatures on a daily basis.
- A lot of malware is designed to access your email contacts and send spam or malware to them from your email account without you even realising.
If it all gets too much...- Finally, if the amount of spam becomes too much to control, you may simply have to start again and obtain a new email address.
- Monitor the old email account in parallel to ensure that all legitimate contacts have your new email address, then delete the old one.

How to link my gmail info into a URL/website


I will substitute example,com for gmail.com so that any email address I create here will be a dead link.

In your HTML editor, you can write this code:

<a href="mailto:you@example,com">Link Text</a>

you@example.com is your email address. Link Text is what is seen by the visitor, as typically a blue underlined link. Replace the example address with your actual address, then replace Link Text with how you want it to read.

You are done, if you can click on the link and it opens your email software with the address showing in the To field.

An added step of security against spam harvesting of your email address would involve you looking up "mailto obfuscator.exe" and downloading and installing the program. It has a red circle icon with a white X inside. Write an email address in the top pane, hit Tab to highlight the gibberish in the bottom pane, then CtrlC to copy to the clipboard (mouse does not work here) and then you can paste into where the email address is in the HTML.

Save the document, test the link and it should be in working order, but spam harvesters won't see the email address in the source code.

Aol block me from sending emails how can i be unblock?


AOL is VERY strict on their "SPAMMING" rules. If you ar sending out several emails all at once, AOL considers this spamming. I believe their rules say something about sending identical emails to more than 10 people is considered spam. If your emails are legitamate and not spam, then I would suggest either changing to a different mail service provider and sign up for a commercial account, or contact AOL directly and see if they will unblock you.

Barb
I would contact AOL and tell them what's been going on. It's possible that someone guessed your password without using a spy program. I haven't used AOL in a few years, but here is where you can get their contact information. I'm surprised Norton didn't tell you that. Good luck, hope it's just someone messing around and nothing serious.
