    > (1) When you forward an e-mail, DELETE all of the other addresses that appear in the body of the message (at the top). That's right, DELETE them. Highlight them and delete them, backspace them, cut them, whatever it is you know how to do. It only takes a second. You MUST click the "Forward" button first and then you will have full editing capabilities against the body and headers of the message. If you don't click on "Forward" first, you won't be able to edit the message at all.

    > (2) Whenever you send an e-mail to more than one person, do NOT use the To: or Cc: fields for adding e-mail addresses. Always use the BCC:(blind carbon copy) field for listing the e-mail addresses. This is the way the people you send to will only see their own e-mail address. If you don't see your BCC: option click on where it says To: and your address list will appear. Highlight the address and choose BCC: and that's it, it's that easy. When you send to BCC: your message will automatically say "Undisclosed Recipients in the "TO:" field of the people who receive it.

    > (3) Remove any "FW :" in the subject line. You can re-name the subject if you wish or even fix spelling.

    > (4) ALWAYS hit your Forward button from the actual e-mail you are reading. Ever get those e-mails that you have to open 10 pages to read the one page with the information on it? By Forwarding from the actual page you wish someone to view, you stop them from having to open many e-mails just to see what you sent.

    > (5) Have you ever gotten an email that is a petition? It states a position and asks you to add your name and address and to forward it to 10 or 15 people or your entire address book. The email can be forwarded on and on and can collect thousands of names and email addresses. A FACT: The completed petition is actually worth a couple of bucks to a professional spammer because of the wealth of valid names and email addresses contained therein. If you want to support the petition, send it as your own personal letter to the intended recipient. Your position may carry more weight as a personal letter than a laundry list of names and email address on a petition.

    I always delete the sender address if forwarding an email, I make it look as if the message came from me..., I don't like things to look untidy..., anyway some good info here, and I hate them SPAM/Chain letter thingy's, I just delete them, or my junk mail filter does...

    Anyway Speaking of the stuff you mentioned, looked like you just copied and pasted it without even cleaning it up, so you just kinda contradicted yourself by posting the message, should of at least removed the ">" and used hyphens "-" instead.., no need for the numbers to... , also a proper title to the thread would be nice like "Ways to reduce Spam"" and maybe a subtitle to..
