Everyone Needs A Good Email Spam Filter

Mar 1, 2008
If you are the kind person who needs to work a lot on the computer and receive emails, personal and professional, then you probably share my feelings about the email spam. The reason why these spams are pervading the cyberspace is that just like us there are many people sitting and working on their laptops or desktops. But these people are not doing what we do but creating spam that invades our mailboxes without our permission.

This invasion of privacy was manageable earlier when the level of spam was less and all you had to do is to delete a couple of mails from your system. You probably did not mind it as long as it did not carry virus along with it. But now the spam mails have increased to such an extent due to the prevalence of internet marketing that each morning you can find hundreds of mails in your inbox which, lets be honest can be some what annoying especially if you have to go through lots of spam to get to the important stuff.

If you have the latest computer then you probably have a pop-up blocker but these are not helpful against the email spam. You should probably get an email spam filter to help you manage your spam better. This is dependent on the email service that you choose for yourself. Most of us have email addresses and irrespective of whether it is a hotmail address or a gmail address, you can expect to find email spam. Most of the email providers have an option of junk mail as a folder where identified spam is saved as soon as it is sent to us. But not all spam mail gets to the junk folders because those men who are busy working on their machines as much as we do and probably more, devise innovative new methods of fooling the various blocking systems that are put in place.

Which pretty much leaves us with only one option and that is to go through the junk mail box and deleting the mails. But if you keep deleting them without unsubscribing to them or marking them as spam mail, they will keep coming in. And your mailbox will keep getting more and more full. This phenomenon will carry on till such an extent that your mail box will literally become full to capacity unless you have an effective barrier in place or you yourself become a slave to deleting spam!
