Generally refers to techniques that aid in avoiding receiving any email or message that is either unwanted or unsolicited.

Spam, vile scourge of the Internet, is any email or message that is posted or sent without the recipient's request or want for it.

Spam is often also known as junk mail and was so named following a Monty Python sketch wherein Spam (the luncheon meat) is featured in every menu item.
