Do you really know how to forward e-mails?

50% of us do; 50% DO NOT.

Do you wonder why you get viruses or junk mail? Do you hate it?

Every time you forward an e-mail there is information left over from the people who got the message before you, namely their e-mail addresses & names.  As the messages get forwarded along, the list of addresses builds, and builds, and builds, and all it takes is for some poor person to get a virus, and his or her computer can send that virus to every e-mail address that has come across his or her computer.  Or, someone can take all of those addresses and sell them or send junk mail to them in the hopes that you will go to the site and he will make five cents for each hit.  That's right, all of that inconvenience over a nickel!

How do you stop it?  7 easy steps:

(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 rename the subject if you wish or even fix spelling.

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 e-mail 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 e-mail can be forwarded on and on and can collect thousands of names and e-mail 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 e-mail 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 e-mail address on a petition.  (Actually, if you think about it, who's supposed to send the petition in to whatever cause it supports?)

(6) One of the main ones I hate is the ones that say that something like, 'Send this e-mail to 10 people and you'll see something great run across your screen.'  Or, sometimes they'll just tease you by saying something really cute will happen. It's not going to happen.(Trust me, I'm still seeing some of the same ones that I waited on 10 years ago!) I don't let the bad luck ones scare me either, they get trashed.

(7) Before you forward an Amber Alert, or a Virus Alert, or some of the other ones floating around nowadays, check them out before you foward  them.  Most of them are junk mail that's been circling the net for YEARS! Just about everything you receive in an e-mail that is in question can be checked out at Snopes. Just go to

It’s really easy to find out if it's real or not.  If it's not, please don't pass it on.

So please, in the future, let's stop the junk mail and the viruses.


Got junk mails?

 Check them up as well!


Nowadays, while we are thinking of internet safety, Spam blockers and tighter email filtering can cause important emails to go to waste. It is necessary to check your junk mail folder for emails coming even from people in your address book. Check the source and sender; you might recognize your safe contacts as well.


We need to look at the hidden treasure in junk mails, of course with all the precautions. They come in all forms. Know the signs of a junk mail.  Don’t let important emails go to waste! After then, you may empty your junk folder to erase them and start with a clean, empty file.

E-Mail Etiquette

Email etiquette refers to the principles of behavior that one should use when writing or answering email messages. Because email is less personal than a phone or in-person conversation but quicker to send than a letter, it is possible for serious breaches of manners to take place.
