Here are our top tips on how to avoid receiving spam.

Tips for avoiding spam

  1. Never publish your email address on any publicly available web page. This prevents people from harvesting your email address.
  2. Don’t give your email address people you think may misuse it.
  3. Do not reply to spam email. You only confirm that your address is active and they will send you more.
  4. Don’t click on any ‘Remove Email’ or ‘Unsubscribe’ links in any spam email.
  5. Do not use a catch-all email address.
  6. Setup a second, “throw-away” email address for subscribing to newsletters.
