Bombardeo de correo electrónico
E-mail bombing involves sending several thousand identical messages to an electronic mailbox in order to overflow it. E-mails are stored on a messaging server until they are picked up by the owner of the messaging account. In this case, when the owner collects his mail, the latter will take way too much time and the mailbox will become unusable...
To protect yourself from e-mail bombing, do as follows:
- Have several mailboxes: a main mailbox you give only to people worthy of your trust and another one you care less about and that you use for example to sign up for online services;
- Install an antispam software program that will keep you from receiving several identical messages over a short time period.
