E-mail spam is the act of sending out unwanted messages to e-mail users. It has had a history before 2004, but these are the big parts that bring spam to the way it is today.

In May 2003 he also lost a $16 million civil lawsuit to Earthlink. On September 27, 2004, Nicholas Tombros plead guilty to charges and became the first spammer to be convicted under the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003. He was sentenced in July 2007 to three years probation, six months house arrest, and fined $10,000.
