Executive Summary

All email users throughout the world, including consumers and businesses, struggle with the scourge of spam email. The costs and risks associated with spam have been well documented and have led to attempts by both government and private industry to curtail spam, notably the United States legislature's CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 and proposals ranging from large email providers banding together to implement sender authentication systems to pay-to-send models. This white paper uses the ICF analysis to make a compelling argument for stopping spam at its source as well investing in state-of-the-art spam filtering technology, which not only saves time and money but can pay off in big dividends to the planet by reducing the carbon footprint of email spam.
