Definition[]

Spammers are "[p]eople sending spam. . . ."[1]

Overview[]

"[Spammers] mask[] their true identities to evade the protective measures. They create false routing information or transmission information, making messages appear as if they come from hundreds or thousands of different domain names and IP addresses. Thus, spammers can ensure that the ISP cannot detect and block every e-mail they send and can evade detection because the thousands of messages appear to come from hundreds of different sources."[2]
