How to Stop Email Spam

How-To: Stop Email Spamming

A community member was having trouble unsubcribing from Monster.com emails and reached out to the Savvy Confessions group for help. Here's the advice of one anonymous reader.

To comply with CanSpam all commercial email sent is supposed to have a snail mail address and at the very best a phone number you can reach them at. If they are not honoring your unsubscribe after 10 business days then you should write or call and complain. Also, mark the email itself as spam in your email client. The higher the number of spam complaints is great feedback that the company is doing something wrong. If you're still receiving unwanted email add the From address to your banned email list or set up a filter that will automatically dump anything from that sender straight into the Trash folder.

Do you have any tips for unsubscribing? Share them in the comments below! Remember, you can ask your own career- and finance-related questions anonymously in the Savvy Confessions group for a chance to be featured on SavvySugar and advised by fellow Savvy readers.
