  • Email Spam: Take Control of Your Inbox

    Posted by Susan Dupre at 4/20/2016 6:00:00 AM

    If you have an email account, you've seen spam.  

    Spam is another term for junk email, including unwanted email advertisements.  The website suggests that most emails you receive are spam:  It's an easy and inexpensive way to reach thousands of people at the same time.  In addition to being annoying, spam email messages can also contain hidden dangers, including phishing scams (see next week's posting) and malware (software intended to harm your computer).  While there are anti-spam laws, they are difficult to enforce because the spammers can easily remain anonymous. 

    It's important, therefore, that we learn to manage our Inbox spam:

    • St. Mary Parish email accounts through Office 365 (Outlook or Mail) have some built-in spam blocker protection, as do Gmail and Yahoo! accounts.
      • Office 365's Clutter is a new email feature that keeps track of what emails you read and which ones you ignore, and moves emails you're likely to ignore into a "Clutter" folder.
      • Outlook and Office 365 Mail also allow you to right-click any spam message and select Junk  | Block this sender.  
    • If you are tempted to click a link within an unwanted email to "unsubscribe," think twice.  While this may work with legitimate companies, spammers will not honor your request.  In fact, clicking the "unsubscribe" link actually confirm that your email address works, and you will end up with more spam. 

    • If you are being bombarded with spam email messages, turn off the Preview pane until you get your Inbox under control. The Preview pane automatically opens all of your email messages, confirming that your email address works and resulting in increased spam.

    • Occasionally, check your Junk or Spam folders, as well as your Clutter folder.  Sometimes, legitimate emails are accidentally routed to Junk, and it's important that you make sure you are not missing important messages.
