If you've been around interenet any length of time then you probably know what spam is. However, if you're new to internet you might be asking yourself question "What is Spam?"
The best place to begin would be to explain to you exactly what spam mail is. Spam is basically just unsolicited commercial emails that companies send to your inbox.
There are a lot of ways these companies get your email address. You may have signed up for a newsletter or promotions with one of them, or you may have ordered a product or service that requires registration from a website first.
It is common for companies to share their mailing lists with their affiliate companies. It’s one of benefits to having affiliations. The only problem is that most companies hide this knowledge in their “terms and agreements” of their websites. They count on fact that most people do not read all way through them. Of course since it is mentioned somewhere in their website, it is perfectly legal.
The average person can expect to receive anywhere from ten to twenty spam’s a day in their inbox; depending on how many promos and registrations they fill out. Once a person accepts or opens an unsolicited email, they become plagued by receiving six more in its place. It is a vicious cycle.
