How can I reduce the amount of email spam I get?

UNC Spam Filtering Service

For information on this service please see the document UNC-Chapel Hill Spam Filtering Service .


Note that some spam can be stopped by simply unsubscribing. If you have recently created an account with a company or web site and you are now receiving spam from them, read the message you are sent and look for an unsubscribe section. This will help keep us from blocking legitimate, commercial sites that actually follow anti-spamming policies.

Also, if the spam is being sent to non- email addresses, you will need to bounce a copy of the message to the postmaster/administrator of that email domain (e.g.,, etc).
