If you’ve been using the same email address for a long time, chances are you’re getting hundreds of messages every day that you just don’t need or care about. Whether it’s discounts and promotions from stores where you shopped for your friend that one birthday, or even potentially dangerous spam trying to sell your personal information, it takes the time and energy you need , to search through all this garbage is simply not necessary.
That’s why we’re giving you some easy steps to regain control of your inbox.
Opting Out of Promotional and Promotional Email Lists
When you shop online, most retailers require you to enter your email address prior to purchase to keep you up to date on how quickly your order will reach you. Makes sense right?
But what they don’t tell you is that now that they have your email address, they will send you multiple emails daily with their latest promotional discounts and offers in hopes that you will keep shopping with them.

How can I unsubscribe?
- Sign in to your email account
- Click on any of the promotional emails in your inbox
- Scroll all the way down and look for an unsubscribe link
- Click the link and follow the steps the retail business provides to opt out
Report unwanted email as spam
Every email account automatically contains a spam folder. Sometimes your email provider will detect spam before it reaches your main inbox and automatically put it in that spam folder so you don’t even have to see it. But it’s important to know when an email hitting your inbox looks fishy, in case your provider is missing something.
How do I get rid of spam in my main inbox?
- Always check the email subject line before clicking on it. If it looks suspicious or looks like something you don’t recognize, it’s probably spam
- If you think the email might be spam, right-click the email without opening it
- A drop down menu should appear when you right click. Select the option report spam, Mark as spamor Mark as junk
Create an alias email address
Yes, we know the thought of creating a whole new email sounds like a lot of work. But we can assure you that it’s a lot easier than you think, and it will keep your main email inbox cleaner and clutter-free than ever.
What is an alias email address?
An alias email address is a forwarding email address that you can separate from your main email inbox but still have access to all of those emails. You can create tons of different alias email addresses depending on what you want to use that particular alias for. Some examples are:
- Promotional or discount alias for any store you shop at
- Work related alias for all your business emails
- School alias to keep track of all your assignments
