How can I stop spam emails?

For more news:

My wife and I never over two decades has received more spam emails each week three or four. Recently we began receiving large volumes of spam. BT, but we are trying to use our e-mail client using IMAP Em system. EM client can throw them in the trash and domain blacklist, but spam emails a day at least five that does not stop. Neither BT nor M. client and Sophos (our anti-virus company) other than to get a new email address, you have ideas about how to prevent this happening. We just have to live with it? Mike

The short answer is you just have to live with it. However, the various postal services of different levels to prevent spam, you will probably see less spam you got a new e-mail address. At least for a while - first, your new address will not be any of the mailing lists used by spammers. Second, on the blocks more spam as a service that can use the Gmail or Microsoft's (aka Hotmail / Live Mail). you are using an email address, then being handled by the Yahoo emails that you understand. In my experience, if Gmail or or blocking Yahoo is less aggressive, perhaps you would benefit from switching.

Their e-mail services back to that tend to put more legitimate emails in their junk folder. Sometimes spam from legitimate emails to my Gmail and spam boxes.

Switching to Gmail
This is because you can retrieve emails from BT address, it is not difficult to switch to a Gmail address, or you can use your Gmail address to send emails from BT.

After you configure a Gmail account, top right, click Select Settings cogwheel, and go to the "Forwarding and active" IMAP to the POP / IMAP "page". Page down "changes remember to click Save."

Next, click "Accounts and Import". The second option on the page "Import mail and contacts", you "Import Yahoo !, Hotmail, AOL, or other webmail or POP3 accounts." You can clearly have permitted your Gmail email address and password that will give it to retrieve your old emails. ( has similar features.)

The next option that enables Gmail to send emails from your old email address, "Send mail as". I'd recommend you already have Gmail set as the default address "can choose to respond" to the same address to which the message was sent. Instead it will encourage your contacts to use your old Gmail address BTInternet address.

Sorry to say, I'm not sure how to handle this client EM. I looked through all the options EM client without having to find a way to specify a different e-mail addresses. I used the EM Clients also send a test email, but it uses this to not use the name of the default e-mail address (my own domain to Gmail through my Gmail address, not ). But you write an email when EM client, you can always choose an email address.

Note that if you use an email program instead of the web interface, BT Yahoo will not download the contents of your spam mail folder by default. This will prevent you from seeing has blocked any legitimate emails. See using the BT Yahoo! Anti-Spam Features for details.

For example, the BT Internet Gmail, your case - you can tell a mail forwarding service of all emails in a different inbox. Spam emails are generally not increased as before.

Incidentally, Google just announced that you Gmailify calledGmailify, feature a new smartphone which allows a "Yahoo Mail or Hotmail /" account. Link your account to Gmail, then you will have to block spam without opening a Gmail account. Perhaps, Gmailify is aimed at people who have limited technical capabilities. I have to open a Gmail account and it looks like it will be better for your old account to the above, but it seems difficult, then maybe Gmailify answer.

Protect your new address
Most spam secret keeping your email inbox is not to tell anyone about it. It is feasible, but you can have at least a few people as possible to give your address. In particular, it can be harvested by spammers, do not post it online where to be. In addition, do not forward chain letters or furry things like cute animal pictures: When you do this, you may be sending your email address to hundreds of people you do not know.

, Do not allow you to download images Avoid opening spam emails, spam emails and never click on links in spam emails. E-mail web beacons, web bugs or tell spammer, you can access email and tracking pixels so that your account is a living one. More will follow spam.

In Gmail, you can check the box next to a spam email and then click on the toolbar button to get rid of spam without opening it. It also helps to identify why similar to Gmail spam, which is sent to other people that you should not be marked as spam newsletters.

Companies do not give your email address to anyone you do not trust. When you give to companies, please make sure you are not marketing emails, newsletters and other opt bumf.

Some people set up separate mailboxes for newsletters and marketing emails, but almost always the leading companies provide an easy way to unsubscribe if you change your mind.

You can use one or more custom another feature of Gmail addresses to provide. For example, if your email address is, you can give an address, such as a or Some even looked normal after the Gmail sign that you provide these emails in your inbox. However, you can set up filters to remove or eliminate them.

Even if you can use a different email address for each company based on?, Then sell your email address you will know them. But I think it's more hassle than it's worth.

As things stand, the best email service providers, including Google and Microsoft, are the bulk of the work in blocking spam, and they also prevent most spam from reaching your inbox. Confessions of an individual is very rare that there are simple steps we can take to improve it further.

Just focus on the more important things in life and remove them.
