what is spam?

you know those emails you get that you didn't have any use for or you have no idea what they are? thats what spam is a way of gaining email addresses. Want to know how to avoid it?

how to deal with spam

fist: of all never reply just delete i cannot stress this enough if you do they will keep the adresses.

second: set up filters so you have a spot where the email you want goes then you have a spam folder that you an just delete when there is stuff in it or when you can be bothered to log into your email.

Third: just delete spam dont even open it because it probably has some form of malware on it and by probably i mean 99.9999999999% of the time it has malware.
