Remember not to open suspicious emails especially if there are links with it. In case there will still be messages that are considered spam after going through the whole process, you may still get rid of by clicking on the boxes beside the messages and click the Mark as Spam button. Nevertheless, it is easier nowadays to identify whether a message is spam or not based on the subject or the sender’s name.
