[B]A professional e-mail address[/B] is defined as one that, in its entirety, represents and reflects the professional interests of the user or owner of the e-mail address itself. A professional e-mail address forms a constituent part of how individuals or organisations actively market their products, services, skills, or professional objectives. A professional e-mail address also therefore communicates factual, useful, and meaningful information about the owner or user of the address.

This one nearly escaped my radar, and does not seem to have ruffled many news source feathers either. Which is surprising, because in my never humble opinion it is actually quite an important bit of news. The Virginia Court of Appeals has upheld the conviction of Jeremy Jaynes (the 8th most prolific spammer according to Spamhaus at the time of the arrest) who, way back in November 2004, was the first person in the US to get jail time for spamming. Indeed, on the double spammy whammy of distributing bulk email of ‘disguised origin’ and possessing a stolen database of …

McAfee publish a list of the top 10 spam subject lines, because of the work done by their threat research and filtering labs as well as customer feedback, and the latest for July shows how the spammer is now concentrating more on ID theft and less on helping you achieve sexual satisfaction or financial security. Certainly comparing the current subject lines with those from other surveys that have crossed my path over the years makes for interesting reading, in a spam threat evolving without end kind of a way. Let us get July 2006 out of the way first, the …

Hi Friends, I am having one contact-us php script. Here i have used php mail function to send email to admin. Even-though i have also used captcha coding, admin is still continuously getting spam (dummy texts) contact us emails. Actually I am not sure how spammers do such activity.

Microsoft's Cybersecurity and Systems Management Research Group have created an automated tool, as part of the larger [URL="http://research.microsoft.com/SearchDefender/"]Strider Search Defende[/URL]r project, to combat sources of comment spam that is the scourge of blogs across the web. Because sites can get high legitimate search rankings while at the same time serving up spammed ads, it is a problem that has to be dealt with. Microsoft is on course to be the unlikely hero of the hour. SpamHunter does this by creating a list of doorway sites, hosted on legitimate blog or forum sites and feeding ads from a central spammer target …
