Abstract

When we want to explain in a good and reasonable manner how the Internet operates and functions, we should clearly emphasize that it is a completely informal and open media. On the Internet, information (data) flow freely and if they are freely flowing and accessible, the aim is to for everyone to be able to send their information to the world. Many would say that it is a true Democracy in every respect. However, unfortunately, it looks more like a complete anarchy. More and more Internet users interpret that freedom, or anonymity, which provides a "global network" in a completely wrong way. These people make use of the Internet services in such a way that inflicts major damage not only to other Internet users, but also to large organizations and systems that operate in the "network". Taking into account the importance of the security of electronic mail, the negative effects of abuse and ways of protecting Electronic junk mail are analyzed in this paper.
