E-mail bombing


Email or e-mail bombing is the term used to describe when the facility of e-mail is abused by users to repeatedly bombard unsuspecting victims with messages and content that is not required or requested. In many cases, the content of these messages are irrelevant and often carry damaging programs such as viruses. The other main purpose of e-mail bombing is to fill the victims mailbox with large amounts of data that then blocks the account, and overwhelms the server causing a denial of service to the victim.
