Abstract

The loss of productivity due to Spam has reached a critical limit. Spoof emails have
dented confidence of people in communications from organisations. This is happening in an age
where email has been recognised as a cost effective way of communicating. Companies have to invest
resources to increase the confidence of consumers rather than abandoning the use of emails. This
leaves two avenues of pursuing the matter, either email vendors have to implement safeguards or
users have to implement technology and procedures. The paper will look at ways in which spam and
spoof emails are being tackled and also make suggestions on how confidence can be raised by the use
of hybrid approaches.
