Getting rid of junk Email

There is controversy over the junk mail campaigns that aim to stop it because of the number of jobs that would be lost if there wasn’t junk mail.

However, stopping junk email seems like a logical argument. It clutters our Inbox and doesn’t get read anyway. You have to click on it to see it. Unlike mail, you don’t have to open it to see what the offer is like you would see if you were sorting mail.

The Direct Marketing Association calls its email service eMPS. It lasts for five years. You will still get junk email, because your name will only be removed from marketing lists if the company uses DMA.

If you still get emails, click “unsubscribe” or “opt out” at the bottom of the email.  THis came out of the CAN-SPAM Act in 2003.  If you opt out, that action must take place within 10 days.
