Tips for cutting spam

USA Today ran a nice story last week on ways to reduce spam.

The story won’t blow away IT pros – it’s aimed at small-business owners – but it may be helpful for anyone still struggling with junk mail.

Spam is picking up, the article said, citing Symantec research that found the percentage of e-mail deemed junk reached 80 percent last month, up from 43 percent in September. (I wonder if that’s a trend or just a spike during the holiday shopping season, though.)
