National DO NOT EMAIL list

Postby Vandalized2 » Mon Apr 07, 2014 3:53 pm

Is there a such thing as a NATIONAL DO NOT EMAIL list?
If so , I defintely need to sign up for this. I am very close to the vest with who I trust. And random emails I just delete and do not even open.
ANy advice on this matter would help

No there is not. The only thing you can do is report spam and instances where you cannot un-subscribe from their list. Look up the CAN-SPAM act as that is what would be used to help you.

who do you use for email?

mine is gmail and I have never seen a spam email go through, it's really good, too good because some of the companies I do give my email to,
sometimes they fall into the spam folder..

I am more interested in do not call list

since I got on it the amount of sales call have dropped significantly but I also want to be placed on the state national call..if it's not the same as federal do not call

Something you can do to see who is selling your info is to give a unique email each time. If you put a "+" in your address then anything after it is ignored and you can add "." which are also ignored. So a email address "[email protected]" for a example can be "[email protected]" and will still be the same address according to gmail. You can also do "[email protected]". You can add in the name of the site you are giving it to, making it even easier to see who sold your info. You can also use this with a filter to easily get rid of spam.

Just remembered that you can go here: https://www.dmachoice.org/

You can opt-out to physical junk mail along with credit card offers. At the bottom it has a opt-out for emails as well but I am not sure how well that works. I know I have stopped getting junk mail in my mailbox.

If you want to track where your information is coming from, once on a promotion sign up I put in a different first name, actual last name, actual address but no other information. It's interesting to see how far that name has spread in 3 or so years. It's a great thing to try out to see how far marketing goes and where your information is sold to. As fare as email goes, I'm glad I didn't put my email on there, but I would support a Do Not Email list if one were to ever be made. I don't think it'll happen though.

While spam is technically illegal, good luck doing anything about it. Many of the true spammers use off-shore servers, so there's nothing that can be done to them, and in many other cases you'll be getting "related company" emails. What I do is use several accounts. Gmail that goes to my phone is given only to trusted friends and businesses that I need to hear from with strong privacy policies. Businesses whose emails I need to get, but may sell my info, go to another account that I check regularly, but doesn't buzz me or get so overwhelmed that I miss important stuff. Scammy/spammy stuff (commenting signups, coupon sites, etc.) goes to a third account I check only occasionally, mostly to delete everything in it. So far, so good...I almost never get spam or even too many emails from people I actually do business with in my Gmail account, I can find semi-important stuff in the second account, and it's rare that anything of importance lands in the third.

You can also just put [email protected] and add a filter to automatically delete or move it to a different folder.

Thanks everyone I do appreciate all your responses. So what I have been doing every time I get an email I make sure to opt out of any further emails being recieved on the bottom of the email as suggested. I guess at one time or another I may have visited these peoples sites and gave them my email. Entirely my mistake, still... I wish this DO NOT EMAIL list existed.
