Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail or Thunderbird:
Spam can be a load on your email box and, most importantly, your time.
If you no longer wish to receive emails promoting new products or services from merchants that you've done business with, log into your account with them and OPT-OUT of further promotional emails. They will still send purchase confirmations and such.
If you are receiving true SPAM, Unsolicited emails, DO NOT click on the OPT OUT link in the email. All you've done then is confirm that your email address is active. Expect MORE SPAM.
The thing to do is install a spam filter.
If you have POP email account - POP (Post Office Protocol) email accounts are usually the email address you use from your ISP (Internet Service Provider). I.E> you@ISP.com
Hotmail, GMail, Yahoo Mail are online services, not POP.
SPAMFIGHTER is free for Home use .(inserts I use Spamfighter Free in all your outgoing emails) You can pay for it and the insertion disappears.
It actually checks your email while still in the box, and removes them
there, before downloading to your computer.
If you have a webpage. do
not have clickable email links, UNLESS they are encrypted.
You can encrypt your email links with online tools and
put the code in your pages.
Online tools can be found
Fill out the subject line with individual identifying
comment so you know from what page the email is generated. This lets you
know where your visitors questions or comments originate.
