Every Internet user is familiar with the meaning of the word "spam". Spam is a kind of advertising mailing, a whole thread of advertising or product promotion. It is also called an information marketing tool. Spam mailings do not cause positive emotions among Internet users, but rather the opposite. Spam often contains information that is unnecessary for a person.
Prevention of spam mailings and tracking the status of e-mail
In order to get rid of spam or warn someone's attempts to spoil you, you must, first of all, remember about registrations on thematic forums. When registering, you indicate your e-mail to clarify registration data. Further, in the profile settings, you can specify add-ons that relate to your email address:
- allow sending letters from the administration;
- allow sending letters from users.
Since the user can be anyone (in particular a spammer), it is advisable to uncheck the second e-mail control point.
Another way out of this situation is to use another electronic mailbox to register on the forums. It's comfortable. All emails that mean little to you will be in a different email address.
If you do not want to become a regular subscriber of a spammer, never click the links that were inside the letter. If you are so interested, then in the browser view the html-code of the page. For example, the link looks like loh13.ru/cgi-bin/guest.cgi?id=6231. Therefore, as soon as you click the link, you will find yourself on the site loh13.ru, and the phrase guest.cgi? Id = 6231 means that you have just found yourself in the spammers database with the identification number 6231. This means that more similar letters will arrive at your address.
