Minimize exposing your email ID to spammers

  • Instead of using common email IDs like sales@mydomain.com or info@mydomain.com, you could use non-intuitive email addresses like sales.mgr@mydomain.com or info.mgr@mydomain.com. This will prevent spammers from guessing your email IDs.
  • Don't make the life of spammers easy by activating a 'catchall' email account, which allows emails sent to anyname@mydomain.com delivered to your inbox. Keep it de-activated.
  • Embed CAPTCHA images in your online forms to ensure only humans are filling them.
  • Encrypt your email address listed online using JavaScript as encrypted email addresses are harder for the spammers to scrape.
  • Display your email address as an image on your website so that only humans can see it and type them in their email client.

So, Happy doing
