Definition: Spam is unsolicited email. Not all unsolicited email is spam, however. Most spam is sent in bulk to a large number of email addresses and advertises some product or -- far less often -- political viewpoint.
Spam is an email message that you did not ask for and do not want from somebody you do not know, who wants to sell you something.
Pronunciation: 'spam ï (noun)
Also Known As: UBE, UCE, unsolicited bulk email, unsolicited commercial email
