|Dnet's Spam Reduction Technology|
"The Dnet team works around the clock improving our ability to reduce spam."
Dnet employs industry-leading spam filtering technologies to proactively prevent spam from ever reaching your inbox.
Basic Tips for Reducing Unsolicited Junk Email (spam):
"Spammers use special programs that extract email addresses from Web sites and Usenet postings."
On unsolicited junk emails, DO NOT click on the REMOVE link (or unsubscribe link). To mass spammers (especially those employing dictionary or broadcast methods), clicking the unsubscribe link indicates that your email address is VALID; and is now available to be sold to more spammers
Remove your email address from your website's pages and provide a web based mail form instead. This way spammers can't send 'spiders' to your page to harvest email addresses and put them on their mailing lists.
"By using random sequences of names and numbers, spammers can send hundreds of thousands of spam emails..."
When you subscribe to offers, or make online purchases, be sure to read the entire page carefully. Often times, additional offers will be selected (for example, "Please send me more information about...") or small print might include that you give your permission for your email address be sold to third-party advertisers. Make sure to read the Entire Page before agreeing to any submission that requires your email address.
Spammers use special programs that extract email addresses from Web sites and Usenet postings. To avoid ending on a spammer's mailing list when you post to a Web forum or a newsgroup, you can obscure your email address by inserting something obvious into it (example: if your email address is email@example.com, modify it to read alex@mydom[delete_this]ain.com.)
SPAM Legislation On the Rise
State & Federal governments are working to create new regulations on email, spam, and Internet pornography. But the process is slow, and the Internet continues to grow faster than laws can be written. Currently there are 10 statutes in front of Congress.

North Carolina's current legislation against spam:
Legislation approved in June 1999 makes it illegal to send unsolicited bulk commercial e-mail containing falsified routing information, if the sender thereby violates a provider's policies. The law applies to e-mail sent into or within the state.
