Block Yourself

January 19, 2009
Interested in reducing the amount of spam you get?
Most e-mail clients have the ability to block senders.
If your e-mail allows you to block senders, add yourself to the block list.
On the surface, this sounds strange but it really does help reduce the amount of spam you get. Many spamers make the e-mail look like it’s from you. So if you block yourself, those spam messages won’t get into your inbox.
The only drawback to doing this is if you send yourself e-mail. Some people send themselves e-mail’s to remind themselves of things they need to do. If you do this, then you have two options. You can either not block yourself and just deal with the spam, or get yourself a free e-mail address from Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail and use that to send e-mail to your primary e-mail address.
