Project Description: On the Internet, email communication has become widespread, but the exponential increase of Spam make the use of email for communication tedious and time consuming. Spamming is the process of flooding the internet with many copies of the same email message. Spam has become a persistent annoyance in the lives of the Internet user. It is considered to be one of the biggest computer problems that the users face today. People who send spam are called spammers. It is primarily used for commercial purposes. The main idea of this project is to study the techniques, methods, tools and strategies used by the spammers. During the course of the project, different categories of Spam are studied and some Spam analysis tools that are available are tested and the results are then tabulated. Finally, a recommendation is made to avoid the spam problem and block the spammers email addresses.
