Anti-Spam

To prevent e-mail spam, both end users and administrators of e-mail systems use various anti-spam techniques. Some of these techniques have been embedded in products, services and software to ease the burden on users and administrators. No single technique is a complete solution to the spam issue, and each has trade-offs between incorrectly rejecting legitimate e-mail vs not rejecting all spam, and the associated costs in time and effort.
