Share Article

Online based email marketing solution, is aiming to protect users by providing them with tips on how to spot and prevent spam from entering their inbox. As a member of the email community, feels that every user should be properly educated on the importance of protecting themselves from spam.

The first step in preventing spam from damaging your computer is being able to identify them. A majority of spam is sent by unrecognized senders with out-of-the ordinary email addresses. Keeping a look out for suspicious-looking emails can help prevent the spread of spam and harmful viruses. Users should also keep their eyes open for subject lines insinuating some sort of reward or celebration, for example “Congratulations” or “You won”, especially if the user does not remember participating in any type of event.

One of the simplest ways to prevent receiving spam to is avoid giving out your email address as much as possible. While surfing the net, there is a lot of pressure for users to give up their email in exchange for offers and incentives. Even though they receive what they asked for, they eventually suffer in the end as their inboxes are bombarded with daily email, sometimes three to four times a day. The best to prevent this is to simply not give out your address. The fewer sites users sign up for, the less likely it is that they will get hit by barrage of spam.    

The last tip would like to offer is to report spam as often as possible. Most email accounts come with a filter to prevent spam from ever reaching users’ inboxes. However, on the off-chance that some spam makes it through, users are encouraged to report it. Reporting spam helps improves automated filtering, making the task of spotting it less difficult.

Founder and President J. Ronald Nazaire commented on the importance of keeping email accounts spam -free stating, “On a daily basis, we as human beings are presented with tons of information and are tasked with distinguishing what’s relevant and what isn’t. To a certain extent our email accounts are an extension of this theory, with misinformation being a very harmful liability”.
