Each day, spam email, or messages forced on people who do not choose to receive it, total 14.5 billion. This type of electronic mail is more closely defined as junk email. Some people define spam even more generally as any unsolicited email. If you did not sign up to receive the email, or give permission, then it is against regulations and strictly prohibited.

These messages flood in boxes and are extremely annoying to people who receive them. To peruse twenty-four hours of the world’s spam at a rate of one message per second, it would take until year 2155, or one hundred forty-two years. That is a lot of spam!

5 Anti-Spam Tips

Always, without fail, make sure you have permission to send your email marketing campaign. This is not only marketing email, but emails from lists or news groups. If a person signs up for the email, you have permission to send them electronic communication. Use an ‘Opt-In’ authentication system. That means if someone signs up for the email, make sure there is a method to authenticate the request. Most companies use a link that is returned to email address and ask to verify by pressing on the indicated URL address. Some other tips are:

1. Apply filters to your email.
2. Look for an Internet Service Provider that has a strong spam policy.
3. Consider a email spam if you do not know the sender.
4. Never purchase anything from a spam email.
5. Use software that provides spam protection.
