Tips for reducing spam

  • Use a spam filter
    Most online email services such as Hotmail and Yahoo have built in spam filters, aditionally, programs such as Microsoft Outlook have build in spam filters, actions such as right-clicking an email within Microsoft Outlook allows you to categorise an email as spam, ensuring you don’t see any more emails from that address.
    For greater security, anti-virus programs have additional spam and anti-virus filters which may be useful.
  • Don’t reply to or click to unsubscribe to emails if you don’t know the sender
    Spammers often send out millions of emails without knowing if the addresses are valid, by clicking on links to unsubscribe to these emails, you are verifying your email address to the spammer, who can use your address for future mailings.
  • Check website privacy policy’s
    When filling in forms online, or shopping online, read a websites privacy policy before opting into marketing emails, some companies may sell your email address to other companies.
