Block Spam Emails

Reduce/Block Spam Emails-

Spam Emails -Spam emails meaning unsolicited, unwanted, email messages. Spam email does not necessarily contain viruses—sometime valid messages from legitimate sources may fall into spam category.

Steps to reduce the spam emails-

  • Check Privacy Policies of the website you visit - Before submitting your email address on any website or downloading any document or application , read that particular organization's privacy policy.
  • Beaware of "By default" Options - Sometimes on websites some options are selected by default. If you miss to de-select those options, you could begin to receive emails from those lists and sometime some unwanted software get installed into your system.
  • Use E-mail Filters - Using email filters you can  block certain email addresses or you can create a white list of your own contact list.
  • Report Spam - You can report a message as spam or junk to that specific website.
  • Unsubscribe Your Email Address:- You can unsubscribe your email id any time . For example you subscribed on any website for newsletters but now you no longer wish to get the newsletters. Visit and there you find a "Unsubscribe" button.
  • Never click on web links in spam messages - By clicking on a weblink within an email message or reply to a certain address, you confirm that your email address is valid.
