Email is my favorite way to communicate with clients. In emergencies I will use the telephone, but in most other situations it’s email. Lately, it has become annoying with the phishing and spam messages I receive. I’m afraid of missing a legitimate message among all the garbage. I’ll be looking into the Spam settings for my business email accounts to see if I can tighten it up again.
I don’t have it as bad as some of my clients who get many more spam messages than I do. I always offer to check their spam settings to help improve the problem. It’s a good idea to inspect your Spam or trash folder in your email in case something important got classified incorrectly.
One defense I use is to blacklist spam email messages from my web hosting admin console. I only started doing this a few months ago and can’t tell if it has helped. Another tactic is from a web console I usually mark spam messages as spa m and it’s hard to tell if it’s helped much. There is one spam originator that I have marked as spam probably 100 times and I still get their messages. I need to check the sender’s address each time and see if they match.
