I want to avoid receiving spam and unsolicited emails.
AWS doesn't allow the use of AWS infrastructure to send unsolicited mass emails, also known as "spam." This includes content such as promotions, advertising, and solicitation. If you notice any violation of this policy, then follow Amazon's abuse reporting process to help us stop or remedy the violation.
To avoid receiving spam, follow these best practices everywhere on the internet:
- Avoid publishing your email address in public pages or forums. Spammers use bots to scrape public pages and forums for email addresses. Sharing your email address in these pages can make you a potential target for spammers.
Tip: Many forums provide direct messaging tools to contact other users privately. If you want to provide your email address to other users of the forum, then use these private messaging tools when available.
- Avoid replying to phishing emails. Always verify the legitimacy of your email source. Avoid providing personal or sensitive information to unknown senders. You might receive phishing emails in many different forms. Sometimes, the spammers pretend to be from an institution, such as a bank, or pretend that you've won a contest. If you reply to these emails, then the spammers recognize that the email address is valid, and they might sell your email address to other spammers.
- Use an email address that's hard to guess. Avoid using email addresses that include easy-to-guess names or phrases. Otherwise, spammers are more likely to guess your email address correctly and send you spam emails. Spammers use machine learning and other algorithms to guess possible valid email addresses. Also, avoid using your exact email address as a login for different websites.
