Author: admin

If you remember last week at AME Computers weekly computer tips we talked about automatically backing up email messages that you consider important enough to back up, and how you can easily send those emails to removal media such as a CD or DVD.
This week we will talked about those spam emails that you do not even want to read and waste time opening. Just the simple fact you open an email can tell the spammer that your email address is live and well and that is all they need to keep spamming you. And worst yet if you try to reply thru the unsubscribe link that even verifies you email address as active to even give the bad guys more of a reason to keep sending you spam.
One surefire way to keep spammers at bay is to never reveal your real email address. Stop scratching your head and thinking how you not give your real email address. Well it"s very simple, unless it is your bank or and organization the your completely trust with your email address like for example AME Computers, give whoever is asking for the address a Yahoo or Hotmail address, and let Yahoo and MSN worry about the spam all you have to do is check once a month to keep it active and if you get spam, there is a lot less pain involved in having your real email address get on a spammers list.
