Every day we are inundated with an array of irrelevant spam emails in our inbox that aren’t just irritating but can be malicious and potentially dangerous. How can you stop the mountains of spam from reaching your inbox and protect your business from the threats they may pose?
Read the small print
When you sign up to most services or make a purchase online the terms and conditions will often invite you to consent to receiving marketing emails. Most of the time this consent is assumed unless you specifically opt out. Ensuring you do this is a mundane task that most of us forget to do, however it can protect your inbox from nuisance spam emails. You might also choose to create an alternative email address for signing up to websites and services.
Mark spam when you see it
It might seem obvious but marking spam when you see it, without clicking into the email if you can help it, it will protect your email inbox from spam email from that same sender in the future.
Never respond to spam
Replying to a spam email or clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link in the email will only generate more spam because the sender will then know for certain that the email address is valid.
