Spam email is different things to different people.I was always led to believe that it was unwanted junk mail.Like mail advertising that you don't want.But,I have come accross others who have said that if the offer does not turn out the way they expected that is spam also.

Yes. Spam is all unwanted junk mail. Spam can also be mail that is sent to you and it is not legitimate mail. I have signed up for things and these places sell my email address to other places without my consent. They are spamming me with all of the junk. They spam me with offers they are not going to abide by also.

Spam is unsolicited information. In other words information that one did not request! Or information that was canceled or unsubscribed to because of no further interest - but yet & still - Keeps arriving relentlessly in your inbox.

I define 'spam' as something pushed at you which you did not ask for. The other is 'scam' when something that was supposed to be good is the ooposite, but through no fault of your own. I must admit that other sort of 'Spam' mmmm - can't get it here and I would love some 'fritters'

To me spam is unwanting email which is junk etc. Sometimes your good email will end up into spam so you will need to put these on your whitelist. I don't normally put this into spam to I see were a letter was sent to me informing me that they have been sending mails to me and not getting through so I check and see for myself and see that it was there. But I guess alot of person have different views were this is concern.
