How Can I Deal with Spam Email?

Spam & PureMessage Anti-Spam Software

The amount of spam you receive depends on your Spamability quotient (SQ)

  • If you have your email address on any websites your SQ goes up as these are culled by spammers
  • If you participate in discussions groups or list servers your SQ goes up for the same reason
  • If you have given out your email address to any surveys or to access a website or register for or purchase something your SQ goes up
  • If you ever respond to SPAM or to the 'reply to be removed from spam list' request your SQ goes way up
  • If you follow links in a Spam message your SQ will go up as this just confirms your email address

A normal range of spam is 0-30 per week depending on your SQ
