Here's why: You might feel like I do that any email you didn't specifically request is spam, but that's not technically true. Spam refers specifically to unsolicited bulk email UBE. Unsolicited is the key word there. For example:. You provide your email address to a company in order to download a piece of content.
The company then starts emailing you updates about new blog posts. While the emails about new blog posts may be unwanted , they're not spam. You technically solicited them by giving the company your email address. The original company sells your email address to another company. Now, the second company starts sending you emails.
That's spam. The emails from the second company are both unwanted and unsolicited because you never gave your email address to that company. Because spam and promotional emails are two separate things, preventing and filtering out these two types of emails requires different tactics. Here's how to do it. My mom called me a few years ago to tell me that she got an email saying a distant relative of hers died overseas and left her a huge inheritance.
These days, I don't get many calls from Mom like that. Email providers have built-in spam filters that automatically move most spam emails to a separate folder, cluing the less suspicious of us in on the fact that an unsolicited email just might be a scam. Still, spammers and scammers work around the clock to find new ways to work around spam filters and get emails into your inbox. But there are ways to prevent these emails, protecting yourself or your kids, parents, and grandparents from spam, scam, and phishing emails.
When an unsolicited email makes an appearance in your inbox, never just delete it. Always mark it as spam. This is how the automatic spam filters learn to identify spam and filter it out. Here's how to mark an email as spam in Gmail, Outlook, and Mail for Mac:. In Gmail , check the box next to a spam email, then click the "Report spam" button.
In Outlook , right-click on the spam email in your inbox and select "Mark as junk. In Mail for Mac , right-click on the spam email and click "Move to Junk. This tells your provider which emails you don't want to receive, and—depending on your provider—may even help it learn which email addresses and domains should be considered spam for everyone.
If you find that a lot of spam is slipping through your email provider's spam filter, use a third-party spam filter to give yourself another layer of protection. It's possible for spammers and scammers to use tools that scrape the web to compile lists of email addresses. This means that if your email addresses is exposed anywhere on the internet, spammers may grab it, use it to spam you, or sell it to other companies.
To avoid this, don't publish your email address anywhere online. Follow these tips:. If you have a business website and need a way for prospective customers to reach out to you via email, use a tool like Google Forms free , JotForm free plans available , or Contact Form 7 free to create a contact form for your website that lets visitors email you without exposing your email address.
Make sure your email address is set to private on all of the social media sites you use. Or—if you want people in your network to be able to see your email address—make sure you only connect with people you know and trust. If you have to use your personal contact information when buying a domain name for a website you're creating, always opt in for the domain privacy feature—even if it costs extra. If you want to run a classified ad and have people get in touch with you via email, use a site like Craigslist that provides a temporary email address for communicating.
If for some reason you absolutely have to publish your email address online, at least write it in a nontraditional format e. Humans can still figure out what your email address is this way, but it's more difficult for scrapers, spiders, and crawlers. Another way that spammers collect email addresses is by sending emails that contain a tracking pixel—typically a 1x1px image—that tracks whether or not an email was opened.
If you open a spam email that contains a tracking pixel, the spammer gets a notification that the email was opened and now knows your email address is both active and monitored. So even if you realize after the fact that it's spam and don't click any links within the email, it's too late. The best way to avoid having your email address captured in this way is simply to avoid opening emails from senders you don't recognize.
However, that's not always practical—an email from an unknown sender could be a current customer, potential customer, job offer, or other unexpected but important message. If you need to open emails from senders you don't recognize, there are ways to avoid getting your email addresses captured by senders using tracking pixels:. Ugly Email is a Gmail extension that displays an eye icon next to any email that includes a tracking pixel. PixelBlock blocks tracking pixels, preventing notifications from being sent back to senders when you open a tracked email.
If you use Outlook , , , , or , images are blocked by default. Never ask Outlook to display images from senders you don't recognize, and you should be safe from most tracking pixels. If you use Outlook. If you're concerned about tracking pixels, it might be worth upgrading to Office If you use Mail for Mac , images display by default, but you can turn that feature off.
With Mail for Mac open, click Mail and select Preferences. Then, click the Viewing tab, and uncheck the box that says "Load remote content in messages. While these tips make a big difference, they're not foolproof. Experts have discovered 70 different ways tracking pixels can be sent—as links, fonts, images, and text colors. In the end, the best defense against tracking pixels is to send suspicious emails to the trash without opening them. Clicking on links in spam emails is another way to indicate that your email address is active and monitored.
If an email seems suspicious, don't click on any links in it—not even the unsubscribe link. Even if the email appears to be from a trusted source like your bank or LinkedIn, open your browser and go to the site directly instead of following the link in the email. This protects you not only from tracking—but also from phishing attempts. Our final tip is pretty simple: be careful who you give your email address to.
Most companies won't abuse the information. But some will. For example, last year I gave my email address to a company in order to get a notification when its product went on sale. I never received the requested notification, but I've received dozens of spam emails from other companies since then, each selling similar products. The original company obviously just took my email address and sold it to several other companies.
If you only give your email address to well-known companies and businesses that you trust, it's much less likely that your email address will get sold to spammers. But even if you do know and trust a company, it's good to read through their privacy policies before providing your contact information.
Some include clauses that give them permission to share your contact information with "partner companies":. It's a doozy to read through the privacy policies of every site to which you provide your email address, but it's an important part of preventing spam. If you must provide your email address to a company but don't have time to read through all of its policies, check out the tips in the next section for a few more options to consider. As a writer—and particularly someone who writes frequently about web apps—I have to test a lot of tools and download a lot of gated content.
Every time I investigate new apps, I find some that I want to keep. But I never want to keep all of the tools I try, and I certainly don't need to receive ongoing promotional emails from each company. And though I get fewer promotional emails since GDPR rules were put into place, it's still time-consuming to unsubscribe from dozens of marketing email lists each week. As a result, I've found several alternatives to providing my primary email address to companies when I know my interaction with them will only be temporary.
If you're trying to cut down on the number of incoming emails but still want tips from Zapier in your inbox, we have you covered. Zapier lets you choose which emails you get—if you sign up for blog updates, you'll only get blog updates. If you have an account, go to your notifications settings to select which emails you want to receive. Create a free, secondary Gmail, Yahoo, or Outlook.
This is my go-to method of avoiding an overload of promotional emails in my primary account. And it's important because—as you can see in the image above—my junk email account gets dozens of promotional emails every day. There are new emails in my inbox right now, and I emptied it just a few weeks ago. If you decide later to keep a tool you were testing—or if you decide you want to receive emails from a company—just change your email address in their system to your primary email.
It's not appropriate to mark promotional emails as spam to block them. Though you may not want the emails, you did technically solicit them by providing your email address, so they don't fit the definition of spam. It's easy enough to unsubscribe from most promotional emails to stop receiving them, and that's the more appropriate action to take.
However, if you find yourself on a list that you just can't seem to get off of—or you're getting promotional emails you want to read, but not right now—use rules or filters to send email from that company to either a read-later folder or straight to the trash.
Here's how:. Gmail Filters. In Gmail, open the email you no longer want to receive, click either the down arrow Gmail or three vertical dots Gmail at the top-right of the email, and select "Filter messages like this. Gmail will automatically populate the form with the most appropriate filtering criteria, so all you need to do in the window that opens is click the "Create filter with this search" Gmail or "Create filter" Gmail link.
Finally, choose what you want to do with the emails. If you want to archive them, click the "Skip the Inbox Archive it " checkbox.

Besides, 'forgetting' to do stuff when you code will always cause bugs ; — eiden. This looks the simplest solution to me, along with adding JsonIgnore to properties which have to be always ignored. Eiden, have you found any other way to do it?
I do not like the way JsonView and JsonFilter can be used to get the same result. Mapper gives null pointer error. I think it is about sub fields of "product" that I set null. Is there a solution for this? Of course this is more a workaround than an answer, but as a quick and dirty solution it works in case the JsonIgnore annotation is not available for some other reason if you have compiled pojo for instance.
