The following information was obtained from the SPAM-L FAQ.

What is SPAM-L?

SPAM-L is a LISTSERV mailing list created on August 19th, 1995 and is dedicated to "Spam prevention and Discussion". That means discussion of spam-prevention, not debating the merits (or lack thereof) of spam. Tips, tricks, procmail recipes, resources for fighting spam, etc. are all welcome. In addition, many people copy SPAM-L on their response to a given spam. This is OK, within certain guidelines What is not welcome is discussion along the lines of "Spam is here, get used to it!" or "Why can't spammers and everyone else just get along?", etc.

How do I subscribe?

Send an E-mail message to with the words subscribe SPAM-L First name Last name in the body of the message.

Who owns/maintains it?

The owner of SPAM-L prefers to remain semi-anonymous to keep from getting flooded with e-mail requests for help regarding spam. It's my job to get flooded with requests for help regarding spam! ;-) Seriously, if you would like to contact the owner, the convention is the same as with all LISTSERV lists. Just send E-mail to
