email spam - what to do?
- NEVER EVER REPLY TO SPAM!
- Spam can look deceivingly legitimate. Email that comes from an unknown sender is probably spam, delete it.
- Don't open attachments in emails if you are in least bit unsure where it is from, or what it is.
- Read up on spam and phishing.
- Most ISPs offer spam filters, use them.
- Get mailwasher, or some other spam filtering software and use it.
- Get an anonymous email address at yahoo.com or hotmail.com and use it only for online forms that you fill in. Change that address every few months.
- Keep your main email address for limited and private use.
- Don't show your email address in your signature if you are using a signature.
- If you are using online forums, news groups or chat lines, don't reveal a valid return email address, create and show a fake one. If you want to give an email address so that you can be reached, spell it out like we do above.
- Ask your friends not to include your private email address in group mailings where all addresses will be visible to all recipients (and to spam bots). Ask them to use the Bcc = Blind Copy field.

Monty Python's Flying Circus:
"Well, there's egg and bacon; egg, sausage and bacon; egg and SPAM;
bacon and SPAM; egg, bacon, sausage and SPAM; SPAM, bacon, sausage
and SPAM; SPAM, egg, SPAM, SPAM, bacon and SPAM; SPAM, SPAM, SPAM,
egg and SPAM; SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, baked beans, SPAM,
SPAM, SPAM and SPAM; or Lobster Thermidor aux crevettes with a Mornay
sauce garnished with truffle pate', brandy and a fried egg on top of SPAM."
