of the corporate companies face the problem of useless mails. They
get these mails in abundance eating up space in their inbox.
Apart from being a nuisance these mails also pose a risk to your
security settings as most of them contain viruses.
Prevention is better than cure is the theme here.
We at Pegasus InfoCorp Pvt. Ltd. have come forth with some of the
tips by which you can protect yourself from theses unwanted intruders.
- Make use of an anti- spam system:
In this the sender gets a mail from the recipients system asking
them to confirm the authenticity of the mail. Here the spammer
will be least bothered to reply back but a genuine sender will
reply confirming his authenticity.
Though this technique is time consuming it does make a difference
in averting spam mails from reaching your inbox.
- Utilize fake email Ids:
To keep away the trouble of setting up various filtering system
the best you can do is set up a fake email Id which you can use
for one time and then forget about it. Even if you do get spam
mails to this email Id it won't make any difference to you. You
can use it for one time for whatever one time information you
need and then forget about it.
- Conceal your email Id:
This is necessary to protect your genuine email address from various
spamming programs known as spambots. These programmes used by
spammers hunt for email ids on the net.
You can conceal your email ids in various ways:
This method can be used by website owners to conceal their live
'mail to' email Ids on their website.
- Use ASCII-code on your email Id to hide it
- Use anti-spam feedback forms
- Convert your email Id into a image
- Email filters:
This is the best technique used by the website owners to protect
themselves from spams and useless mails. We at Pegasus InfoCorp
Pvt. Ltd. use Microsoft Outlook which has spam mail filter. This
filter automatically removes the spam from the mailbox.
However these filters are not completely fool proof in removing
the spam. These mails then can be removed manually by the user.
- Divert mails:
TThis is another method practiced at Pegasus InfoCorp Pvt. Ltd.
Our administrator has diverted all the wrongly addressed mails
to a new email address. Most of the spams get collected in this
email account which then the administrator deletes manually. Thus
preventing from spamming the authentic email accounts.
