Unsolicited Commercial E-mail ("UCE") or Unsolicited Bulk E-mail ("UBE")

Unsolicited Commercial E-mail or Unsolicited Bulk E-mail
Unsolicited Commercial E-mail (UCE) or Unsolicited Bulk E-mail (UBE), or "Spam", as it is more commonly known, is an electronic message which advertises goods/services to someone without that person's prior consent or having a previous relationship with that person.

"Spam" is both a nuisance to Internet users and providers and a threat to network security. "Spam" costs recipients time and money. Spam can slow down e-mail delivery across the Internet or even cause computers on the Internet to crash.
