1. Stop Spam with Disposable Email Addresses - As soon as you get spam through a disposable address, you disable it, and all messages (and all spam) sent to the disposable address bounce back to the sender instead of your Inbox.
2. Watch Out for Those Checkboxes - To avoid that,look closely at every form you fill on the Web and make sure all relevant checkboxes are not ticked. Sometimes, the text will read: “NO, don’t give away my email address,” and the checkbox will consequently be unchecked by default. Check it.
3. Disguise Your Email Address in Newsgroups, Forums, Blog Comments, Chat - To avoid ending on a spammer’s mailing list when you post to a web forum or a newsgroup, you can disguise your email address by inserting something obvious into it. If my email address is email@example.com, I can modify it to read email.guide@ABOdelete_thisUT.com, for example. I will not get spam at that email address since all messages to it will bounce, but people who want to send me an email can still do so after they remove “delete_this” from the address.
4. Use Disposable Email Addresses at Your Web Site - Use Disposable Email Addresses at Your Web Site. Use a disposable email address in the mailto: links on your site instead of your real one. Depending on the mail that comes in, you take two different sets of actions: If a stranger sends you a legitimate email that you welcome,Create a new disposable email address and send a reply including the information that any further emails should only be sent to the new, dedicated disposable email address and If spam arrives at the disposable email address posted on your home page, disable the address immediately and replace it with a new disposable email address.
