What is Spam?

Question

I receive a lot of unsolicited e-mails. If a computer is so literate why do I receive ones without my address. They call them blank e-mails that cannot be stopped. Isn't there a program that can be purchased to prevent these e-mails from occurring????

The problem you are experiencing is called Spam e-mails This is when someone(usually of a commercial nature) sends unsolicited e-mail indiscriminately to multiple mailing lists or individuals To counter this you can try installing a spam blocker software, or if necessary change your e-mail
