Share Article

The CAN-SPAM Act has failed to decrease the amount of spam being sent on the internet. SpamButcher ( can solve your spam problem with a free download.

The CAN-SPAM Act went into effect on January 1st 2004. SpamButcher founder Rich Olson has been researching its effectiveness. "Our own tracking system has indicated an approximate 11% increase in spam since CAN-SPAM went into effect. This lines up pretty well with other organizations efforts to track the spam level. All data leads to the same conclusion. CAN-SPAM has failed to reduce the level of spam on the internet."

"My advice to users is to focus on cleaning up their own inbox. The first batch of anti-spam products weren’t very effective – but there are a lot of good solutions out there now."

"SpamButcher is designed to immediately solve your spam problem and can be downloaded for free from "

"Unlike competing products, SpamButcher doesn't require training to start killing up to 98% of spam. It can eliminate the vast majority of spam immediately after installation."

CAN-SPAM Lacks Teeth

"While the CAN-SPAM Act does place minor regulations on spammers, it doesn’t do anything to actually outlaw spam."

"What's surprised me is how much spam doesn’t even make an effort to comply with the act. One of the more stringent regulations of CAN-SPAM is that commercial e-mailers must provide their physical business address in the message. About half off all messages don’t provide an address, and a large portion of the ones that do are surely false."

"It's possible in the future the legal system might play a role in curtailing spam, but the CAN-SPAM Act isn’t going to do it."
