1. Protect your inbox: Do not give out your e-mail address to anybody you do not intend to correspond with.

2. Use free web mail accounts: For merchants and others you do not correspond with on an ongoing basis, use a free web mail account, such as Yahoo or Hotmail. This way you can keep your primary inbox clean from spam mail.

3. Do not post your address: Resist the temptation to post your email address on websites, chat groups, forums, etc. Spammers often harvest email addresses from these locations.

4. Never answer spam: Never answer spam mail. Most times you will sending the message back to a robot and confirming that the email address is legitimate. This often leads to an increase in spam mail.

5. Opt out: When you sign up for a service or you have purchased a product online from a reputable company, they will provide an opt-out option in the email. This will remove you from the mailing list, if you do not wish to receive any information in the future.
