Chapter 12: E-mailing > Avoid Spam

Avoid Spam

One of the perils of receiving e-mail is spam. Spam is annoying at best, with messages that stream into your Inbox with advertising in which you have no interest. At worst, spam contains offensive or dangerous messages that promise all kinds of rewards for just a few simple actions (usually an attempt at identity theft).

Notice that the title of this section is “Avoid Spam,” as opposed to “Eliminate Spam” or “Prevent Spam.” Unfortunately, spam is part of receiving e-mail, and the best you can do is to minimize your exposure to it as much as possible.
