Turn off auto return receipt acknowledgement


Some spammers put a 'delivery' or 'read' receipt request in their emails. If your email program (or mail server) automatically confirms these receipt requests you will just be confirming your address is valid = MORE SPAM.

We would recommend you either turn this feature off or if your email program supports it make sure it is set to 'prompt' first before sending.
