What is Spam?

Spam is an inappropriate attempt to use an email address, as a broadcast or advertising medium by sending the same message to any number of people who do not want or ask for the message. Spam is often an irritant to people and can cause email to become slower as the ISP (Internet Service Provider) networks are forced to process millions of spam email messages. Spam can also cause your email to download slower as you receive more and more of these messages.
