Filter Out Spam Email From Social Networks

If you're being inundated by emails from social networks and other websites you've signed up to, there's an easy way to filter that out. Google's gmail has the best spam filters around. It will automatically filter out the worst spam offenders, but it won't get rid of those pesky notifications, updates, and requests from social networks. To filter those out, simply add a + sign to the end of the email address you signed up with, followed by an identifier. For example, if you signed up to LinkedIn.com, your email address would be "youremailaddress+Facebook@gmail.com" or "youremailaddress+FB@gmail.com". Next you can go into your gmail account and set up a filter for all mail received at that modified email address. This filter can do whatever you want, including send those messages directly to your spam folder. Watch Leo explain this in episode 1002 of The Tech Guy. (2:12:31)
