We have all heard the line that SPAM is costing industry millions of dollars, the truth is that SPAM is easily avoidable. Hundreds of IT workers are employed to find SPAM solutions when a little bit of education is all that's needed.

If you use these tips then you don't need to enable server-side SPAM filters. SPAM filters have lots of false negatives and false positives - which means emails that are not SPAM are being deleted.
