Email Security

There is no 100% solution to get rid of junk email once you already got (unless someone monitor email and delete them manually). However, there are many possible ways to prevent from getting more to your inbox.

  1. do not publish your email to public;
  2. use alternative email such as webmail for public use;
  3. do not response to junk mail even they told to to click the link to remove you from their list;
  4. do not forward email messages or you email address will go circular the world;
  5. do not open HTML email (once you open it, the sender might know this address is ok to be sent again), use simple text email client / utility to preview it first
