1. What is Spam?

Spam is a slang term for mass-mailed unsolicited email. Spamming is sending many messages of the same content to people who have not requested it. Most Spam is advertising, often by dubious companies for dubious products; such as get-rich-quick schemes, quasi-legal services, and pornography sites. Spam costs the sender only his monthly Internet fee. Costs incurred are paid by the recipient, the ISP, or the carriers, rather than by the sender.


2. Why is it called Spam ?

Folklore has it that the name has been taken from the Spam song in Monty Python's Spam-loving Vikings sketch. The Vikings, who were sitting in a restaurant whose menu only included dishes made with Spam, would sing this song over and over: "Spam spam spam spam, spam spam spam spam, spam spam spam spam..." The volume level of their singing made it impossible for other people in the restaurant to hold a conversation.

Thus the Spam connection with your email box. With your box overwhelmed with Spam, it's difficult to find legitimate personal mail to carry on personal correspondence.

4. Should I select: "Remove me from this list"?

Use the "Remove me from this list" option only if you subscribed yourself to be on that mailing list. Otherwise, we recommend that you do not reply to the "Remove me from this list" addresses, as this only confirms that your email address is active, and may then direct more unwanted email to your account. Also be wary of clicking on any website link inside of an unsolicited message, as this may reveal your address to that web site.


5. How can I prevent my email address from getting to Spammers?

Spammers usually harvest email addresses from websites.
