Solutions to the Internet Spam Problem
What are spam and UCE (Unsolicited Commercial E-Mail)?

"Spam [UCE] is flooding the Internet with many copies of the same message, in an attempt to force the message on people who would not otherwise choose to receive it. Most spam is commercial advertising, often for dubious products, get-rich-quick schemes, or quasi-legal services. Spam costs the sender very little to send -- most of the costs are paid for by the recipient or the carriers rather than by the sender." [http://spam.abuse.net/whatisspam.html]

There are many things you can do now to fight spam and UCE. Show your support for Pending Legislation to outlaw spam by writing/calling your representatives in government. Encourage law enforcement officials to enforce already enacted anti-spam legislation.

Adopt and enforce a spam and UCE policy and publish your policy so that your clients and potential clients are aware of it. Many good spam and UCE policies can be found here:
