Spam email or junk email is unwanted email received by the recipient. Almost every internet user will have received emails promising millions of  dollars from corrupt politicians.

Many people use email programs with a  spam filter, but this is not 100% accurate. While it is not possible to totally eliminate spam email, you can keep junk emails manageable.
