What will be the best approach to prevent spam or junk messages received always in your mailbox?
Each time I open my mailbox or e-mail account, I keep on seeing lots of uninvited or unknown messages. It's sometimes annoying. How can I prevent that from happening?
Pls use filters & color coding.
Can help you more on knowing the email client you use...
There is no way to cut unsolicited emails completely, but there are ways to cut the volume down.
1. Set up a separate email account for shopping
2. For the email account for shopping, use a large email service providers such as Yahoo, as they provide decent junk mail filtering service.
3. Set up junk mail filter for Outlook.
4. Actively unsubscribe email senders
5. When you check out or order items on a shopping site, make sure that "future email solicitation box" is not pre-checked. If so, uncheck it.
I hope this helps.
The answer to your question depends a lot on what type of email client / service you are on. I prefer a multi-vector approach, with at least two layers of filtering using two different vendor technologies or services. For example, many of our clients us a hosted spam service like McAfee as the first layer, which prevents a larger portion of spam and has some virus filtering capabilities. Because it is hosted, the "bad" mail never gets to your Internet connection, and thus never gets to your mail server or client. Then, add a second layer - if you are hosting y our own email server try a firewall with spam filtering capabilities - we like Fortinet or Cisco. As a last layer you can look at software on the mail server or client. However, in larger organizations, client based filtering software can become cumbersome to manage.
Hope this helps
First, what email server and client are you using? If you manage your server, install server side spam filtering. The solution is dependent on the server you use.
Next, what client are you using? Again, the solution is dependent on the client software.
Unfortunately, there is a one size fits all solution. You can message me with questions, if you'd like.
Filter it by a Spam Arrest Firewall box such as Calyptix Access Enforcer or Barrucda Spam Firewall.
What everybody said is relevant. Depending on your company size and resources Hosted Exchange may be a viable option which will cover all of that for you.
Gmail's filters allow you to manage the flow of incoming messages. Using filters, you can automatically label, archive, delete, star, or forward your mail, even keep it out of Spam.
Opt out of as many emails messages of that nature that you are un-interested in. Only sign up for those things that you truly are interested in. It is important to manage your inbox so that you are only getting relevant messages there. Some folk keep a second email for third party messages that they want to see but not check on a daily basis.
If you have a domain and a web site and your emails are on that account, install an anti-spam program on your server/host. If you receive your emails on your computer, you can define some rules so that when your email client is checking your mailbox, it runs those rules (and based on your rules, it can delete emails that follow those criteria) and then, download your emails.
You have my sympathies. Sometimes my inbox seems totally out of control. Here are a few tips that work for me.
Reputable companies will ask you to opt in before they send you information or put you on a mailing list. In fact, many have moved to a 'double opt in' process.
If you ended up on someone's mailing list and you did not opt in, then it is spam. However, it is possible that you 'opted in' to someone's list and they then sold their email list. They likely included a notification that they do sell their list, but it was probably in in the small print. There should be an 'unsubscribe' link on the email. Usually clicking this will stop future emails from coming to you from this company. If they continue to send after you have unsubscribed, you can mark it as 'spam'.
Depending you your email browser, you likely have a 'spam' or junk folder. If you drag the email to this folder, you will still receive them, but future emails should go into this folder.
Hope this helps.
