Overview

The primary goal of this work is the methodical analysis of the potential, limitations, advantages, and drawbacks of anti-spam measures.

The range of considered anti-spam measures includes legislative, organizational, behavioral and technological ones. Furthermore, the conceptual development and analysis of an infrastructural email framework that features such a complementary application, is pointed out.

After the presentation of the technological and organizational facets, the framework is analyzed twofold: its theoretical effectiveness is assessed with the aid of the formal model mentioned above, its storage and traffic requirements are analyzed quantitatively.
