spam? Spam? How to prevent spam? I think reading this article, you must be harvested.
I. Why spam
This principle is not complicated, there are e-mail with tools such as privacy, it is spam such a market. This family has frequently reported cases of public health, supermarket shopping guide and unsolicited SMS, etc are the same, to meet the needs of advantages, a steady stream of spam from first day of the birth of the Internet on the opposite side that exist.
Often browsing some websites, forums, are required to be registered, at least leave a contact so that its mark on the Internet. Many spammers are automatically reflected on the collection address E-mail, once transformed into a list of spam, a member of your mailbox will probably be an endless stream of spam using these.
Third, how to control spam?
This question has many answers, is finally the subject of the article!
1, E-mail named to be reasonable
Not all spammers are collected by the first address, then send individual use of dictionaries that extreme to send, commonly used terms can be stored in the dictionary file and then mix @ domain suffix can be easily sent to go online search can be found at a number of similar software. Here is an example: the apple is a common word in English, but many people take it as the name, if you are lucky enough email@example.com registered mail, received a very high probability of spam.
And so, here are some names of mailboxes unreasonable, for example, the registered name is Wang Xiaohong: firstname.lastname@example.org
a bad reason: his name when the name of mailbox, not conducive to the protection of privacy, very easily become the object ‘dictionary spamming. If the change wxhong @. Com or email@example.com, then the probability of being hit by a dictionary is very low, if combined with numbers on the back, it’s even better.
the wrong reasons: for example, in a number of years and this is the name of mailbox, it is easy to think of the date of birth is not conducive to the protection of life private, vulnerable even. If firstname.lastname@example.org change the embarrassing situation of mobile number 623 546, after six years, but this is very common and easy to remember safety.Summary of
: Name E-mail must be special, the best combination to allow symbols such as dots, underscores, etc. combined with the number (which is also set safety tips secret codes) and as the name of the more difficult words typical of spam attacks, for example, 10 mailboxes behalf of all the six software mails are sent from the beginning low. In the name of progress, look to the future ease of use: easy to remember, easy to remember others, for example the number zero and the uppercase letter O confusion, try to avoid.
2, wireless stage name
in the forum and other places of their own mailbox, would first examine the above-mentioned acquisition process Youjian search, search engines are now so advanced that you can use your own mailbox to make a small test directly in Google or Baidu search your mailbox full name, if recognized many a number of spam you receive is very necessary. Cruel is done to save time in Gmail chat history can be today, how confidentiality you
Need to leave the place without a specific mailbox @ identity, because they are the objects of specific research. Skip to apple dot com xxx or Apple [[xxx] dot] com will be safe, and it is a foreign policy forum signature methods such as mail, of course, a prerequisite is to see people understand . But I never use this method, because we put one foot in front, that means replacing only some simple research this address as long as the search functions are simple changes you can perform a new search for your address. Here recommend the following methods have been used by many people, which makes the electronic signature on the image. intelligent search engines and then the face of the human brain needs to identify graphics or some difficulty.
production method is simple, visit enter your name as the apple, then select the appropriate suffix automatically generated. You can then use to save images directly or save the image address, the next time need to stay in the mailbox can download an image or link code, what follows is a collection of essays carefully signing British email can provide some sophisticated sites:

3, anti-spam filter
in email client software, including the web interface has this feature, for example, there are two methods of implementation Foxmail: List of law and list learning method: The filter must belong to the scope of the management of e-mail. Will not receive spam or address of the blacklist, all addresses in the rejection letter Yigai, or set the white list, in addition to addresses outside the whitelist rejection Yigai.
blacklist, as long as watching the spam epidemic is a current problem: spammers rarely use the same mailbox name will not be sent because of the ongoing crackdown on spam, increasingly result. Thus, the blacklist function is used to prevent not want to see the letter, for example, has fallen out with someone online, to be implemented in the filtering mail refused, j ‘ would use Zhe offers: – p. To the white list, the most classic to the number of Hotmail mailboxes, and because it is the oldest e-mail, hotmail spam is more than ever, but the good news features are very strong anti-white list can be set here.
Learning: Foxmail it this option, but need to learn more than N messages to use this feature, and the accuracy to be tested. I think it is the ISP message must be, what is the source filters, for example, “are money, sex articles” and other words. Gmail, 126, etc. are made in this area as well. In Gmail, if the net, and can easily click a button to report spam and go to a special spam folder, small things handy.

4, E-mail self
This is a simple question with a mailbox or work for outside contact with friends, a website and subscription email address used to register or more. These are the first two years of extensive publicity and mass popularity, leading to the current mailbox cybersquatting chaos. Apart from this side, if you really do, there is no complacency in terms of Charles’s letter to see some mailboxes, and even more do not remember that, anyway, which you think they want to see the final result is the mailbox most commonly used or.
In fact, email providers are trying to make improvements in this respect, the most famous must be the clone provided by Yahoo mail, e-mail address if you have direct access to parameters that will be detailed For example, the following email@example.com After setting out or is derived firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com address as significantly, the letter sent to these addresses reach the same mailbox if it is can simply delete the message name.
In addition, users of Gmail through Gmail’s unique characteristics can also be very convenient to reach label: label first series ‘list’ and put the filter is the recipient’s name contains “+ firstname.lastname@example.org” file and paste the list of labeling live, then fill in the areas that require registration email@example.com + apple, this method can easily reach an intelligent e-mail message and purpose of the source.
