Avoid spam in the future
- Never respond to unsolicited email.
- Never respond with the word "remove" (or similar) to stop unsolicited spam email.
- Avoid displaying your email addresses in public places or online directories.
- Never sign up with sites that promise to remove your name from spam lists. Though there are some legitimate sites, most are address collectors used by spammers.

Unsubscribe from email lists
It's not spam exactly, but sometimes our inboxes get cluttered with email from email lists we've subscribed to and just don't want anymore.
