In most of the cases, junk mails come to you when you or someone else give your e-mail address to a News Group, or a Marketing site, or an Internet Survey, or a Bulletin Board. Programs called "robots" lurk at these sites. These robots are programmed to look for e-mail addresses. Since all e-mail addresses have the same pattern e.g -
(email@example.com) the search for e-mail addresses is relatively easy.
Once found, an e-mail address is added to a bulk-mail list. You may have been very careful and not given out your e-mail address. Nevertheless, spam (unwanted junk mail) comes in. In this case, the spammer has sent out mass mailings using common first names and an ISP domain name, e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon receipt, DELETE the junk mail message. Think of it in the same context as throwing away the junk mail you receive at home.
DO NOT REPLY to the spam message.Almost all spammers use fake ddresses and your reply action might cause another flooding of junk mails to all original addressees.
DO NOT respond to "instructions to remove me from the mailing list". This often serves as a confirmation that your account is active and the mail is being read. For advertising purposes, this makes your address more valuable.
There are no other effective methods to completely stop the junk mails. As a precaution, try the above suggestions and most importantly, never ever subscribe for E-mail offers or reminders in any website.
