Spam Management Tips
Be cautious about using unsubscribe options in spam messages you receive. Sometimes the options to get off of a list are legitimate, but other times you are just confirming that your address is real and you might end up receiving more spam.
Create different email addresses through public providers to use for purchasing products, interacting with vendors, mailing lists and newsgroups. Use your primary or personal address, the one that you want to keep long term, for contact with family, friends, and appropriate business associates.
Set up spam filtering and develop a routine for managing and deleting it.
