Hunters Email Fight Club - Spam avoid, spyware, scams and cookies
  

Follow these common sense advice to avoid problems with mail.

Suspect Everyone: Most unsolicited email is spam someone just covered with the hope of making a sale or generate a list. However, there are some unscrupulous players out there who try to scam you. Never reply to these unsolicited emails. Even "unsubscribe" notifies the sender that your e-mail is used. If this sounds of interest and they list a website, type it into your browser to verify.

"Just Say No" to Porn: You know when bad things come on the screen. Messaging software filtering tools will reject mail from e-mail from your frequent spammers, or certain words ("sex", "porn" or "free drugs", for example) in the subject line. It is easy to implement. Log on to your e-mail, click on "Settings" and follow the instructions. Even I could understand it without asking my wife for help.

Avoid SPAM - It's Nasty: Almost every ISP has a spam blocker these days. If yours does not (you should probably pass), there are several good third party spam blocking services such as Brightmail. I have several email accounts, and for the pleasure that I note how much email they jumped into the spam folder every day. Typically, it averages around 2500 - 3000 per account. I run a couple of Internet companies so that the number is slightly above average for a single user. However, I thank the geeks that developed spam blocking every day.

Join Users Anonymous: Unless you're involved in Internet Commerce of some sort (and want the exposure as much as possible), you must pull your ads from the Directory of important services. You've probably never (knowingly) signed first, but chances are, your e-mail address is included in some large databases. Directories such as Bigfoot, Infospace, Switchboard, Yahoo People Search, WhoWhere and are pleased to take your listing down if you ask them to.

Scramble Your Eggs: Encrypt and digitally sign all your sensitive messages. It's a little pain, but it is enough to burn a time to know how important it is. If your mail software does not support robust encryption, you can download freeware encryption software PGP. Leave room for the geeks at MIT (with no intention of Matt). Most messaging systems have a capacity of industry standard encryption.

Do not Eat the Cookies: Cookies are trackers that remember your IP address. They are handy for sites you use often and do not want to go through the process of validation. However, some villains will send you an email to a collector cookie for hanging your information. Problem here is that you might already be damned before realizing that it is a fake e-mail. To avoid cookies sent by e-mail, use a mail client software, which lets you close the browser automatically rendering engine. This step is a little hard core for the average Joe, but those of you who need to know who you are.

Mind Your Own Business: Do not use your browser to read email on someone else's machine. If you are an agency and insist on snooping, always use "Clear History" when you finish to prevent subsequent users from getting into your mailbox.

Never "Personal" at work: Violation of this simple rule gets more people burned than any other act of defiance in the modern workplace. We had quite the network of great videos and jokes that circulate on the LAN the last ship I sailed in. Until the server's computer people to show me what they can spy. Never send sensitive personal messages on your machine work.

Re: Hunters Email Fight Club - Spam avoid, spyware, scams and cookies

I am providing you more Advice about avoiding the Spam :
  • When you enter your details into a form, make sure that the entries specify the use of information that can be made to your email address.
  • Create e-mail addresses dedicated to the purchase on the internet for communication in public spaces, to register for newsletters
  • If you still wish to show your email address on the web, protect it by hiding it or by encrypting them.
  • Protect your anonymity when you participate in discussion forums or if you use instant messaging software using a pseudonym.
  • Do not make visible the email addresses of your correspondents when you create a group or mailing list in the same way when you forward an email message. This means hide mail addresses of all recipients in the If sending an email to several people simultaneously. For this use when sending a message the feature "copy" of your mail is often symbolized by "Bcc".
  • Use a filter "spam": the use of filtering functions proposed most often by e-mail programs allow you to filter some unsolicited. There are also software, some of which are free software (free), which can usefully complement these devices.
