A guide to spam

You’ve received it, you don’t want it, you don’t understand who it’s from or what it’s about. So just press Delete. Or, if you want to recognise, report or block some of the offensive, fraudulent or just plain annoying email that very occasionally gets through GreenNet’s anti-spam systems (or that you’ve come across with other email providers), here is a rundown of the main types.
