Email

  • What is the difference between POP and IMAP?
    With POP accounts, when an e-mail is read, a copy is created locally on your computer and the original message is deleted from the original server. They are tied to a specific computer and aren’t able to be viewed anywhere else. Most of the popular e-mail services use POP e-mail.With IMAP accounts, e-mail messages are are stored in a remote server. You can then log into your computer using different e-mail clients such as Outlook or Thunderbird as well as your phone and you will be able to read the same messages. and even through their mobile phone and read the same messages. They remain on the server unless the message is deleted. This type of e-mail is mostly used with business based e-mail accounts.
  • How can I reduce spam?
    There are many different thigs you can to to reduce spam in your e-mail inbox. Most e-mail clients actually automatically filter your spam for you, placing them in a “Spam” or “Junk” folder, which is extremely helpful in reducing inbox clutter.One of the most effective ways to reduce spam, though, is to be very cautious of who you give your e-mail address out to. Many online giveaways and “freebies” sell your e-mail address to spammers, and you’re likely to be barraged with unwanted e-mails. It may be a good idea to even create a separate e-mail if you desire to enter lots of giveaways or subscribe to many newsletters.

    If you have made a purchase at an online retailer, you may notice you start receiving many e-mails from them which aren’t necessarily “spam” but can sometimes be annoying. Often, there is a small “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of your e-mails which can be used to take yourself off the automated list.

    If you have tons of e-mail subscriptions that you want to filter out at the same time- consider using the service Unroll.me which helps you filter out and un-subscribe all of the mailing lists your e-mail address is on. It also can combine all the newsletters you wish to stay subscribed to in one convenient e-mail daily. It’s a great service!
