Maybe this should be in the beginner forum, I don’t know.
I’ve got several mail boxes and some forwarding addresses for our business and those, forward to the mail boxes. We mainly use Outlook 2010. (Sometimes Webmail).
I get an awful lot of SPAM sent to those forward-only email addresses and then the people here with the e-mail boxes that get those forwards subsequently get that junk mail.
Is the best way to just continue to filter at the Outlook stage? It seems like I spend an awful lot of time selecting to “junk” email (and then as long as it comes from the same address, we’re fine - but that doesn’t always happen, obviously!)
I don’t know if there’ s a primer on all of this that I should read or not. Don’t have an IT department (I’m it!), but there’s got to be an easier way?
Maybe installing some Norton AntiVirus thing at some point along the chain? Other options? How do you guys handle it? I think next time we do our website, we won’t have our e-mail addresses on the site (instead, just a contact or a click-to-email because I wonder if a lot of it stemmed from robots “harvesting” this stuff, or if other SPAM just comes from spammers trying all the obvious: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com etc etc.
