I have a solution for spams in my email
June 17, 2007 5:16pm CST
I have come up with a great way to deal with spams emails.When I get a spam email I hit reply and whatever it says in the subject I leave but I remove the 'Fwd:' and delete everything from the message part and insert one of my referral links.I doubt if I'll get any referrals this way but I will be sending a spam back at them...lol What do you think?

I think you have something there. Although I think our emails are traceable. Might not work and they might have something that will up the numbers. Let me know if it seems to work for you. I already have them sent to a bulk folder where they are deleted after a time. I don't have a problem with them in my inbox. Good luck with this and let me know how it works for you.

Ahhh, those spams never failed to mess my emails every single day. I kept wondering where they come from. I hope I have enough time to do what little mischief you did. As it is, my online time is limited. I might try it if I have some spare time left.

I would be really careful about your tactic treat spam emails. First of all, as far as I know the moemnt you send a reply email to these automatic emails, your email address is enetered into other spam email databases, which means you would possibly get even more of them in the future. Rather just delete or block them, i.e. ignore the content at all!
