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 keep a check on Email Spam?


Step 1: Set up "filters" in your Gmail account to automatically delete junk mail from specific senders. While spammers tend to change their email addresses frequently, you will sometimes get repeated spam messages from the same sender. Go into your "Settings," click "Filters," and set up a filter that automatically deletes all incoming emails from the sender.

Step 2: If you are getting junk mail from the same company, but the return address keeps changing, create a filter to delete the emails by detecting certain words. For example, maybe the company is called Global Moneymaking Enterprises. Create a filter that catches all emails that contain those three words and set it to delete them automatically.

Step 3: Rather than deleting junk emails that make it into your Gmail inbox, select them and click the "Report Spam" button. This will move the message into your spam folder, but it will also give Google information to help it improve its spam filter.

Step 4: Set up a special Gmail address that you use for making purchases, signing up for newsletters, and doing other activities that require you to give out your email address. Sometimes companies will opt you into promotional offers or sell your email address to spammers. Block this mail from coming to your main Gmail account by protecting that address and only giving out your special account address.

Step 5: If you notice a lot of junk emails in your spam folder that contain certain words, set up a filter to screen out emails with those words. Terms such as Viagra are common, but spammers often change them around to defeat spam filters, However, many of these changes are used frequently. For example, many spammers use the same Vi@gara misspelling. When you notice this, block those terms and you won't even get their messages in your Gmail spam folder.

Hw can I block an email from coming in


The Settings section of GMail is needed to block SPAM from their webmail.
Click the gear icon, click "Settings", click "Filters", click "Create new filter". Enter words, names, etc., and save the new filter. I haven't tried it and don't know if anything else is needed.

If you use an email client to receive the mail such as Thunderbird, or Outlook Express, you can block individual senders, or create message filters where particular words cause a message to be redirected. Using Thunderbird, I have a filter that sends any email not in my address book to Trash, though I could send it to a SPAM folder or my Purgatory folder. I check each message header before deleting the message permanently. If a sender has a new email address, or hasn't mailed me before, I add them to the address book and they won't be filtered out in the future. But most of the time I see the name of someone I know in the Trash, it's just a scam, SPAM, or malware.

I dont want to use yahoo account these dating site wont quit sending me email and i am tire of it


You might not be able to get rid of their emails but you can mark them as spam and they will arrive in your spam folder. You can then delete them with all the other junk mail that comes in.
Just check the box in front of any of these emails, then go to the top and hit the spam button. From then on they will go directly into the spam inbox and not bug you anymore. Good luck!

How do i unblock an e-mail from a friend, i think i put him in my spam blocker by mistake how do i get him out?


really this can vary from email provider.

I will give you a few things to try ..If this does not work , write back with your email provider for better instructions.

Try going into your email account: look for spam folder.. click on it.
find the email or email address you sent to spam. click or check its box.

now find the move to/send to button somewhere on your screen tools or menu.
Send or move it back to your inbox.
this should correct the problem.
___________________________________________

If it does not go into your contacts and add that particular address to your contacts.. by adding it to your personal contacts it should stop it from going to spam.

please remember to leave positive rating for my answer and a testimonial if it helped.

Daily Email quite arriving in email


An alternate scenario could be that the company from which you have been receiving these emails has been blacklisted by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for myriad of reasons (most commonly spam abuse). This would have nothing to do with anything that you've done on your end. Occasionally triggers are set off higher up in the chain that can push a wanted stream of email into the blocked bin.

Contacting your ISP to see if the email address from which you were expecting the Daily Word emails to come has been blocked may FixYa.

I am receivng spam in my email box even though it has been set to not allow spam, by myself as well as a tech suport person last week. I continue to get loads of spam!!


If you're using Outlook, a simple thing to do is to right-click a particular email, and click either 'Junk email' and add the sender to black list, or click 'Create rule', and add some common subject lines you get, and send all matching messages to go to the deleted folder.
