Is your inbox getting flooded with junk mails that are obviously spam (and maybe some that are not so obvious)? There are hundreds of anti-spam solutions out there, some free, some paid, and some are themselves scams! We bring you two solutions depending on your budget and how much control you would like over your spam fighting efforts.
The basic idea here is to encode your email address so it will not be easily harvested by robots crawling the Internet in search of email addresses. These robots are based on a script that searches for the “mailto:[email protected]” string (this example will probably be harvested, but it won’t do them any good since the email address is not valid).
What’s potentially worse than getting lots of spam in our inbox? Possibly when email systems think you’re the spammer! And as a result, you are hearing from recipients that they are not receiving your emails. This can be a huge problem for small businesses that are sending out everything from invoices to requests for proposals via email. The good news is the solution is typically fairly straightforwards – our experts explain.
