Forwarding SPAM

PSMail Quick Tip: Forwarding SPAM, such as emailed chain letters or bizarre consumer warnings, seems harmless but may have negative repercussions.

Forwarding SPAM:

  • Slows down provider networks, consuming bandwidth and disk space – generally driving up costs for all of us.
  • Forces others to waste time sifting through the messages and verifying the validity of the information.
  • Spreads hype and sometimes unnecessary fear and paranoia.
  • Can spread malicious code or even a virus.

Use reputation sites such as WOT (Web Of Trust) to look fore reputation of the site or the content you are forwarding
