Learn Simple Strategies That Will Stop Spammers From Bombarding Your Inbox!
Spam filter is the solution that most people resort when they try to steam the flood of junk mails and spam.
However, there is a problem!
First: Some spam will still get through.
And that legitimate messages get caught in the spam filters is a big problem. It is a big problem for both the sender and for the receiver. If you use POP accounts on your ISP or use free email accounts like Hotmail you will sometimes be forced to use their spam filters. You are often not even told that legitimate messages may be deleted.
Why will they get stopped?
Spam filters may give red flag to an email simply because it contains words which the filters also find in spam messages.
Often newsletters you sign up to get blocked because too many messages are sent out at the same time or some subscriber have complained accusing the sender of spamming. The rules of the spam filters changes over time as this is an ever going arms race between the spammers and the anti spam filter manufacturer.
So how can you stop the flood of spam hitting your email account?
Simple, you have to go stealth!
Look at email spamming as a war.
Using spam filters is like putting on armor. It gives you protection, but it will also cost you and give you less flexibility.
The spam sending gangs, there are estimated to be fewer than hundred worldwide, machine gun bombard only email accounts which they can find.
So how do they find you?
Instead they collect or harvest email from web sites using spam boots. The spam boots works in a similar way as web content collecting search engine spiders except they only collect email addresses. They also collect email address from address books found inside email software like Outlook or Eudora. They do this by using viruses and spywares.
Your solution to avoid getting on their lists is to go stealth and become invisible to the spammers!
One common solution is to rewrite the email address on the web site.
Another method which is preferred by commercial web sites is to use a contact form that also hides the address from the spammers.
One solution which I use and have found to work well is to hide the address from the spam boots with java script. The address then becomes clickable for the viewers. You can learn how to use java script and hide your email addresses from the spammers at http://www.data-backup-and-storage.com/stop-spam.html
You should also use firewall and anti virus software as a protection so that spammers don't get access to the email addresses from within your computer. As an extra precaution you should also use spyware removal software. This will remove possible spyware from your computer. All this measures should protect you from spammers and their spying eyes.
However, be careful! With this method in order to work you should adopt a strict email discipline and limit the number of people with access to your email addresses and not spread them around.
But, what if your emails already have been spread into the spammers mailing lists?
It is important to understand that the spammers want new and fresh email addresses.
The answer is, use Google!
You can then contact the owners of those sites and ask them to remove the email address.
