Unsolicited electronic communication, otherwise known as Spam, is one of the top nuisances on the Internet. In addition to wasting people's time with unwanted e-mail, Spam also places a huge burden on corporate and educational network resources. Because the Internet is public domain, there is little that can be done to stop Spam altogether. New legislation has been introduced to make Spam illegal, but all that has been accomplished so far is the generation of much legal debate on the issue. As a consequence, there are many organizations and individuals who have taken it upon themselves to fight Spam with a variety of techniques. There are many ways to combat Spam, with some strategies more effective than others. This paper will outline the various effective strategies for coping with the deluge of this unsolicited electronic communication.
