1. PREVENTION # 1 means of fighting against spam - to protect your address. No spammers will know your address - there will be no spam.
Illuminate your address on the network, you have to throw it away and start a new one, it will be just a matter of time.
And, as a result, to report again to all your friends and partners a new address, It is possible to lose a number of contacts. To prevent this from happening Get two email addresses. One address for long-term contacts (do not shine in the network).
Another address for making contacts, using on the net (chats, bulletin boards, etc.).
Then at the first address there should not be any spam, because it is not known on the network.
When the spam goes to the second address, just discard it and start a new one.
2. SELECT NAME People tend to get the most concise address. Say, firstname.lastname@example.org - it's cool and what a pity, That all simple addresses are already occupied. Be sure that spam is stale on email@example.com without stopping.
It's cool to have a laconic name of the site, and the email address still has to be reported to everyone personally, let it be out of numbers or original, not a beaten word. By the way, for this purpose the leading mail gmail.com registers names not shorter than 6 characters. All short names have long been listed as spam.
3. HTML SPECIMENIMAL The simplest and most frequently used way to protect against spiders is to encode an email address With special HTML characters. Instead of the dog - @. But today this method is hopelessly outdated.
Robots can easily find such addresses.
5. ANTISPAMMERS But, that if you are lit up, or you are so famous that it is impossible for you not to light up, Here you can not do without an antispam. There are many antispam programs, you can download them on the network.
I do not advise what to do.
I came to the conclusion that all these antispam are small and weak, and you can not pull a sensible antispam, This is for the forces of only a solid company, for example, such as Gmail.com. They have spam on the server, You can always go in and correct it. So my urgent advice: get a mail on Google.
The best spamfilter I have not seen, all the spam remains on the server, Which, if desired, can always be viewed and corrected. Antispamers do not completely solve the problem, but make life easier in the problem.
6. POCKET PC AND WAP Spam has reached this level, but today there are quite reliable means of protection. Therefore, the development of this issue is not relevant.
