Oracle Tips by Burleson 

Web Stalkers
Chapter 13 - Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam

Spam Is a Waste of Time

Most computer users report that the vast majority of their inbox is spam and out of approximately 50 e-mail messages per day, only one or two of those messages were legitimate.  The problem of spam is clearly out of control.  The time it takes to open a message, read enough to determine that it is not wanted and then delete it, infringes on an already tight schedule for many. 

In today’s world, most people have so much to accomplish in a day that wasting even 30 minutes on junk e-mail consumes the precious few moments that could otherwise be used to play with their kids, catch up on reading, or simply relax.

Don’t Risk Being a Victim

Besides being a time waster, another danger of manually reviewing all e-mail messages is the risk of becoming a victim of a scam.  Chapter 7, Internet Scams, showed that many scams arrive via e-mail.  If successful, these scams can cost time, money and even lives.

Reducing the quantity of e-mail messages in a user’s inbox will allow them time for a more careful analysis of a suspicious message and can improve the chances for recognizing a con in a timely manner.

Don’t Risk a Virus Attack

Still another possible danger that rears its ugly head in spam e-mail is the potential for virus attacks.  Chapter 12, Virus Attacks, details the damage that viruses can bring to a computer system.  Without adequate protection, viruses arrive unchallenged and an infection could result.
