What Is The Most Effective Way To Stop Spam?

No one is immune to spam. We’ve all gotten it. And, chances are, you’ve been pretty annoyed by it too. We can only get so many emails claiming that a cash grand prize or free cruise is awaiting us as long as we click on a provided link. It’s become ridiculous. But, nevertheless, we continue to sift through unwanted emails on a regular basis.

According to, about 45 percent of our emails are spam. The site also reveals that, in 2016, 75 percent of companies reported falling victim to phishing scams. As a business owner, dealing with spam feels like such a waste of time. Naturally, you have more important things to do. So what can you do to stop spam for good?

Set up a blockade.

When spam enters your email inbox, it needs to be flagged. However, this can be a bit of a process. Blocking spam on your own requires you to open each email you receive in order to set up blocks of future emails from each sender. Although it’s time consuming, over time it may help to reduce the amount of spam you get.

“If you’re receiving spam emails from specific senders, you can always put them on the blacklist through your email client,” informs, “For example, Gmail lets you ‘block’ senders you don’t want to receive future emails from. It’s very simple. Simply open the email, and navigate over to the right side of your screen to access the drop-down menu. See the block option right there? That’s it. Click on it and you’re all set!”

Ignore spam completely.

There are those who promote the complete opposite approach of the first suggestion. In contrast to the “open and block” advice, another idea is to pay spam no mind. Opening spam emails, many believe, simply prove that your email account is legitimate, thus setting it up for more spam emails in the future.

“If you recognize something as spam before you open it, don’t open it,” instructs Lincoln Spector on, “If you open it and then realize it’s spam, close it. Do not click a link or a button, or download a file, from a message that you even remotely suspect is spam. If you opened a spam because it appeared to be coming from a friend or co-worker, contact them immediately and let them know that their account has been compromised.”
