We've all seen it — the e-mails that come to us from a sender we don't know and promise a frog that jumps across our screen, a low mortgage rate or a medical miracle pill. These e-mails are otherwise known as spam. Your inbox gets cluttered or worse, your computer is infected with a virus as you scratch your head, wondering how it ever happened. Now there is a way to stop the madness! Canning Spam: You've Got Mail (That You Don't Want) is your remedy to inbox clutter and infected computers. Learn how spammers get your e-mail address and how to stop them, how viruses are transmitted through attachments, how spammers can mask their true identity and how to ultimately block unwanted e-mails. Next time you log in to your e-mail account, be happy to hear those three little words: "You've Got Mail!"

From the Inside Flap:

People are talking about 'Canning Spam'

"Sinister spammers are determined to pack our email boxes with unsolicited advertising, steal our identities, and expose our systems to harmful computer code. In 'Canning Spam,' Jeremy Poteet reveals the inside information, tips, and tricks that every user needs for self-defense. Don't read or send another email message until you’ve read this book!"
--Joe Kraynak, author of dozens of best-selling books including The Complete Idiot's Guide to Computer Basics, Que's Internet Yellow Pages, and Best of the Internet

"'Canning Spam' is an invaluable resource for those who suffer from one of the most -- if not the most -- annoying and debilitating misuses of the Internet. With this book, readers will become educated on the many faces of spam, how it works, and most importantly, what to do to rid your PC of it."
--Marc Saltzman, syndicated consumer tech journalist and author

"Spam is the worst thing about using the Internet -- if you're like me, you almost dread looking in your inbox every morning, knowing that you'll be besieged by come-ons, scams, and offers to enlarge certain private body parts. 'Canning Spam' will help you take back your inbox. It offers real-world, hands-on advice that will not only clean out your inbox, but help keep you off spam lists. And its in-depth explanations of how spam is created and how you can stop it will help you figure out spam-fighting techniques on your own. Buy this book and get back your inbox."
--Preston Gralla, author of 30 books, including How the Internet Works, and columnist for Ziff-Davis

"'Canning Spam' is a detailed examination of the spam and virus problems facing all computer users today. Not only does one learn the stories behind the problems, the author also provides common-sense solutions that one can use to reduce the incidence of spam and other email-borne annoyances. Particularly interesting are the real-world "case studies" that the author uses to demonstrate how regular users are affected by these pesky attacks. All computer users should take the precautions recommended in this book!"
--Michael Miller, President, The Molehill Group; author of more than fifty best-selling books including Absolute Beginner's Guide to eBay

"Spam is a big problem. People are tired of weeding through tons of useless information, wasting their precious time, and being exposed to a continual barrage of electronic harassment. This book will prove valuable to you in describing the true definition of spam, its origin, and the many techniques and measures in order to prevent it."
--Christian Kenyeres, Consultant

"Do you want to understand spam, email viruses, and all the other mysterious malicious things that go bump in the Internet night? If so, Jeremy Poteet's 'Canning Spam' is the book for you. You’ll find more useful info than you ever knew existed, as well as every safe-email tip known to mankind. Once you read this book, you will not only have that wonderful sense of security that comes from knowing what you are doing, you'll be able to hold your own with any of the local neighborhood nerds (not to mention your 12-year-old nephew)."
--Harley Hahn, humorist, computer expert, philosopher, author of Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages

"Unwanted email wastes users' time and employers' money by exploiting both human and technical weakness. 'Canning Spam' combines plain-English descriptions of technical attacks with real-world examples of how and why they work, even when users think they know enough to avoid becoming victims. Until we get to the point that books like this aren't needed, this is one worth recommending to many email users and to every email administrator."
--Peter Coffee, Technology Editor, eWEEK
