How to Stop Spammers and How Clean Email Can Help
Stopping spammers is unfortunately much harder than ending up on some list of email addresses sold to spammers, but there’s a lot you can do to significantly decrease the amount of spam you receive.
For starters, you can block all senders of spam messages and use email filters to prevent suspicious emails from reaching your inbox. In Gmail, for example, all you have to do to train spammers is click the Spam button every time you encounter a spam message.
If you can, don’t publish your address anywhere online and ask your friends and colleagues to keep it private. There are articles online describing how to spam spammers and arguing that sending spam messages to spammers is a great way how to fight back. The truth is that you should never ever respond to spam messages because that’s how spammers mark you as a priority target and focus their effort on you. What’s more, sending spam messages to anyone—including spammers—is illegal and could get you in serious trouble.
There’s a very fine line between spam messages and harmless email clutter, which is why it’s always a good idea to unsubscribe from as many newsletters and commercial email subscriptions as possible. If you feel that unsubscribing from newsletters and commercial subscriptions is too much work to do manually, we have good news for you: Clean Email can make sure that newsletters and unwanted subscriptions will not show up in your mailbox with just a couple of clicks.
