I was reading the blog Forensic Focus, which talks about an article posted on the BBC which talks about how Spam email is often tied up with sophisticated online crime.This got me thinking about the visibility of my own email address. My own personal email address is very "old" in the sense it is "old" on the Internet. I have had this email address since 1995. Because of this found I received alot of "Spam" email, due to the fact this email address has been around for some time and has some visibility on the Internet. However over the past couple of years I have adopted a series of strategies to cut down on the number of Spam mails this address receives.
Therefore here are my recommended lists of Strategies to cut down your Home Spam.
1. Utilise the Outlook 2003 Junk email filter.
2. Utilise the Outlook 2007 Junk email filter and anti-phishing techniques
3. Utilise the anti-phishing and extra Security techniques as employed in IE7.
I also came across this list of "do not's" and "Dos" recently , which has further cut down on my Spamming and phishing emails.
