Anti-spam self-help checklist

  1. Do not use a catchall email account on your domain(s). Only list aliases and POP accounts that you actually use. This stops the frequent spams that fire off emails to a list of names on a domain.
  2. Obscure email addresses on your website, i.e. replace them with JavaScript "trick" email addresses, or, switch to web forms for initial contact, rather than displaying an email address.
  3. Never, ever, click on any links in any spam - especially not to "unsubscribe". All this does is confirm to the spammer that they have a "live" address.
  4. Set your default e-mail address in cPanel as :fail: - never use anything else but :fail:
