is overwhelming the Internet with voluminous copies of
the same unwanted message in an attempt to force unsolicited
email on people who would not choose to receive it. The
bulk of this spam is from commercial advertising, often
for dubious products, get-rich-quick schemes, and other
off the wall services we neither want, need, or asked
spam targets individual users with direct bulk email sofwear
or from online services that provide bulk email. Email
spam lists are created by scanning message board and guest
book postings, stealing Internet mailing lists, or searching
the Web for addresses right off your web site with a myriad
of software products available to do this. Email spams
typically cost users (you and me) money out-of-pocket
to receive. Many people - anyone with phone service who
can read or receive their mail while the meter is running
is directly paying for garbage they don't want.
particularly nasty variant of email spam is sending spam
to mailing lists (public or private email discussion forums.)
Because many mailing lists limit activity to their subscribers,
spammers will use automated tools to subscribe to as many
mailing lists as possible, so that they can grab the lists
of addresses, or use the mailing list as a direct target
for their attacks.
have researched some of the more effective anti - spam
softwear on the Net and found some really good packages
that will do a good job of keeping your email box free
of the garbage we all receive these days... check them
out... they can do the job for a very reasonable cost.
Based on ease of use, options offered, and cost, I have
rated the software with a 4 star (the best) to a 1 star
(a good product for what it was designed to do, but not
nearly effective as the 2, 3 or 4 star products).
