I set up my email account Yahoo many years ago. In those days , email is something to look forward to , usually a good match with a friend or family member . Boy have times changed . My account now receives upwards of 500 spam messages a week, and most of the messages I receive are certainly not family and friends, which is what I used to make reading e - mail fun. Can we go back to the way it used to be ? Probably not, but we can " get to the good stuff " faster with a few tweaks in the system.

Clean Up Your Emails

I set up my email account Yahoo many years ago. In those days, email is something to look forward to, usually a good match with a friend or family member. Boy have times changed. My account now receives upwards of 500 spam messages a week, and most of the messages I receive are certainly not family and friends, which is what I used to make reading e - mail fun. Can we go back to the way it used to be ? Probably not, but we can " get to the good stuff " faster with a few tweaks in the system.

Create and use an account of "junk mail " . This time I used my email address to something and I do not uncheck the box next to " Special Offers " was the point of no return. My Yahoo account has become my account of "junk mail " mixed bag - . I give this email to every Tom and Harry website that requires me to enter an email address to use your site. This way if I joined a " member newsletter ", or if the company wants to send me their " Internet-only special offers, " they all go to the same place. Then I created a special email address that only people Pristine most important in my life know, and I do not give to anyone. In this way, I have a personal email address that is litter free . Ahhhh .

Use disposable addresses . If you need an email address quickly and do not care about getting a response or keep track of correspondence, Mailinator is your answer. It is a public mail service, ie there is zero privacy, but who cares when it comes to spam, right? Just create an email name you like and attach it to@mailinator.com. Any email sent to the email address is publicly accessible Mailinator site, so you can see if you like and send it to your email address "real" if it turns out to be important. No passwords or having to register. A few things to note: the email is deleted in a few hours, so if there is a possibility that you need to see a response message probably should not use Malinator. Also, all attachments are removed from incoming mail. Good for clearing the virus, but bad if someone sends you something important.

Use the automatic filter and sort incoming messages quickly. Most email programs have options for automated message filtering . Order specific senders in special folders configured , or color code in your inbox to get your attention important issues quickly. Try ordering your important contacts in a ' Act Now ' folder and have subscriptions or coupon offers a kind of category folders are created as " shopping " , " school news " or "recipes" . I have mine set up to automatically move mail from certain senders right away. the options are truly endless. Thunderbird is an email application that can help Free resolving several mailboxes in one place. has Thunderbird sync all your email addresses so that all mail is in one place, and then use its advanced features classification consolidate and organize all your messages so you only have to login once to see everything, or at least all you want to see.

Reduce clutter . Once you have reviewed an e- mail , make sure it is arranged in a folder or delete it. Failure to use the inbox as the storage area will not be as crowded and overwhelming. Do not forget to clean your folders periodically. Use the view options to sort messages by date and / or sender to purge quickly. Probably do not need to save that e- mail he received from his sister in 2009, or purchase to confirm the toaster I scrapped last spring.

Disable social network notifications. Login with Facebook and Twitter and suddenly you're spammed by them too. Oh ! Turn it off by going into the settings each and disabling email notifications for everything possible. You really do not need to be notified within the application you have a new message and then receives an email that you have a new message. Wow , that's a lot of notice.
