    Here's a link to an article I found, about a spammer getting fined for sending out emails. Below is a summary of the article.

    Heckel argued the e-mail law enacted in 1998 is unduly restrictive on legitimate business. But the only burden the act places on spammers is the requirement of truthfulness. The law bans commercial e-mail with misleading information in the subject line, an invalid reply address or a disguised path of transmission across the Internet

    I really don't like getting spam, it's just like the regular junk mail but easier to throw out. I hope that guy gets penalized for spam maybe it will set a standard for others.

    Angry Spammers cause financial loss

    Recently at a place I worked for a spammer used a built in feature of our exchange server to redirect spam messages. Though it was a mistake with our server security, I do not blame the administrator, more MS and the spammer.

    The long and the short is that our server and domain was flagged as a spam server and our normal email was denied by other servers. This caused us undue grief and caused our business dealings to slow down if not halt for a few days while we worked it out.

    If I could find the spammer that did this I'm sure I'd give them more than a fine...
