September 7, 2007, Newsletter Issue #79: What is Spam?

Tip of the Week

Spam is the method some marketers use to send their advertisements to as many people as possible at the same time through newsgroups or personal e-mail. They send their messages to people who did not ask to receive them, which is why these messages have been dubbed “junk mail.” Through the large number of recipients, the marketer hopes that some will open the mail and choose to buy the product or service they are selling. Unfortunately, the products and services are mostly illegal, scams or pornographic. Fortunately, however, there are e-mail programs that will automatically sort these spam messages from your regular e-mail.
