Why weren't these emails blocked? Example 10 (part one) #632

I am not sure why these messages were not automatically blocked by my security software. Therefore, any business hoping to cut back on unwanted email should consider these examples.

During a weekend, my work email address typically receives 900 email messages. I expect that number to increase around major holidays and/or long weekends. However, there was -no- excuse for over 5000 messages arriving in the inbox from the end of July 1 to the beginning of July 5. Somehow, it seems to be the fault of a single person. Part Two of this tip will attempt to explain what went wrong.

Why weren't these emails blocked? Example 7 #590

I am not sure why these messages were not automatically blocked by my security software. Therefore, any business hoping to cut back on unwanted email should consider these examples.

7. A message titled "NEW!! Promotional Gifts For Your Choice" is distinctly spam because of its awkward upper case characters and exclamation marks. Perhaps the fact that the senders's name begins with characters that Outlook does not recognize caused a problem. Obviously, a business spanning several nations will want to make sure it can read several languages and distinguish all its customers' messages. But it should not blindly accept email just because its software can not understand all the languages and fonts.

We Wear the Email Mask: What Does It Take to Avoid Spam? #495

I have seen a fair number of efforts to disguise webmasters' email addresses. Some are simple and apparent to the viewer, such as seeing the person's address typed out as "person@NOSPAM.email.com" or "person at email dot com." If one avoids the Mailto HTML tag as well, I imagine one will receive much less spam.

However, I am not sure if solutions such as are this effective enough, since I have seen individuals typing out their email address in much more elaborate manners. These begin to look comical, such as "-person- a t SPAMBLOCK /email/ p e r i o d COM." If these distracting spellings and protection software can not prevent unwanted mail, something is wrong.

Why weren't these emails blocked? Example 1 #584

The following subject lines from email spam follow discernable patterns. There is no evidence that any of these could pass for genuine email. Therefore, I am not sure why they were not automatically blocked by my security software. Any business hoping to cut back on unwanted email should consider these examples and think up ways to delete similar useless messages.

1. "Application approval #1692" and "Application approval #4680" were received on the same day. This sounds like a genuine business-related email, but the messages concern home mortgages. Unless one works in the real estate business, one should consider screening out any message that begins this way. Also, I should mention that this is even more challenging because the senders had real names and not incoherent names.
