All of us have experienced the tremendous pains of spam. Who can remember the glory days of Hotmail 2MB storage where 85% of the inbox was filled with spam. While this plague is going to exist for some more time, here are a few tips we can take to overcome this issue and prevent spam from hitting your inbox.
» Don’t post your email address on message boards or mailing list.
» Maintain two separate email aliases – one for business and important email and other one for subscribing to mailing lists and web forums (called throw away email)
» Don’t publish your email addres directly on the homepage – use Email Obfuscators.
» Provide a fake email address to websites that require mandatory registration before you download software or read their archives.
