Many holiday rental companies do not know how to set up a form on an enquiry page, if holiday rental company you advertise your property on does not have this facility and your email address is displayed for all to see then contact company and get them to look into this.
You can download software which will scan your email before it enters your email software, like Outlook, you can then block any email coming from that email address, IP address or domain name. That way when emails come in from blocked sender they never appear in your Outlook inbox. I bought some software called Mail Washer, it’s easy to use and doesn’t cost much. If any of you use software to combat SPAM, then let me know and I’ll publish this in next newsletter
Spam blocking websites
I am not too familiar with this type of blocking, but you can subscribe and enter your email details on to a secure website - all emails sent are directed to this website, and sender has to click on a link before it is sent to your inbox. On some of these websites you can either deny or accept emails from sender, and all rejected emails are sent to blacklist folder.
