Spamming refers to use of an electronic messaging system to send unsolicited messages especially advertising messages to a group of recipients. Unsolicited messages mean the recipient did not grant permission for those message to be sent.
Anti-spam refers to the use of any software, hardware or process to block spam from entering a system. The anti-spam software uses a set of protocols to determine unsolicited and unwanted messages and prevent those messages from getting to a user’s inbox.
Most of the Anti-spam solutions that are available today can be customized as per your needs, allowing only the approved emails into your inbox. Such software always presumes that all the incoming emails are spam, and only allow those, from the people you know, to come in.
