Junk e-mail, also commonly referred to as spam, is considered any e-mail that is unwanted and unsolicited by the user. Spam now accounts for 50% of the total e-mail traffic on the internet and a great deal of the overall traffic on the internet. It is a huge problem and relatively uncontrollable without causing interruptions in communication for valid e-mail users’ conversations.

This spam problem is very difficult to control because the definition of spam is different for each individual computer user. Some people like to get offers for new products and informational e-mails daily or even hourly, but others are repulsed and overwhelmed by it. This brings up the point that e-mail is very personal and has to be addressed almost on a person by person basis. So you have to ask yourself that question. What do I consider to be Junk e-mail in my e-mail inbox?
