Simple steps to combat spam
Implementing a best practice policy regarding email account usage can be an
effective tool for minimising the amount of spam that end users receive.
While having such a policy should not be considered a complete solution,
it can serve as a significant line of defence against unwanted email.

E-Mail filters
