How to stop unwanted email

Posted by Tom Starks On November - 18 - 2011

Day by day we get our inbox filled with unwanted emails. This is not a secret anymore that more that halves from our emails are spam. At the first look, they do not seem dangerous, not at all. But in time, all those emails may bring us serious damages…

Any spam hides a virus, most of them named Trojan Viruses. These viruses usually erase important files from your computer and also make your computer run slower and slower. In this case, the first thing you need to do if receiving an email named ‘how to get rich quick’ or so is to complain and contact your ISP. They are made to filter out any strange email which may interfere with your address. The next step refers to you – from now on, be careful to whom you give your address and public it only on secure sites.

Also, if you can say how to, try to send a message to the postmaster at the spammer’s ISP in which to complain about the fact you have received an unwanted email, or two, or ten thousands. You can right-click on the message and choose properties or options to see the spammer’s source. But, beside all this mess, it should be taken into account the fact that you must be aware of sending an unwanted email to a postmaster which can be just an advertisement. It would offer to a person who you are subscribed to some money, and we do not thing you want to ruin its business.

Search on the Internet some built-in spam filters if your email provider does not have one. It is free and easy to install, and more important, it does not have any viruses. If you are not convinced yet, we suggest you to buy anti-spy software to find some alternatives. An old method of impeding any spam to interfere with your computer is to look over the Internet after the known viruses, which have usually the same names or the same intentions. Though, this method needs more time and also, day by day new viruses are invented using other names and effects on your computer. You need to have an eagle eye if you want your computer to run at its maximum power, and it is just the first thing you need to have in your mind. Any unwanted problem or email has to be erased.
