Is it illegal to sign someone up for junk?

Bombarding someone you dislike with spam is clearly illegal -- but what if you just sign them up for a bunch of spam lists? Apparently, that's illegal too. In a first of its kind, a judge found a man guilty of harassment for signing his boss up for various spam email newsletters.

Correspondingly, what is Mailbait?

Mailbait is that service that promises to fill up your email inbox by sending you a huge amount of spam. Apparently it automatically subscribes you to several mailing lists. It's meant for "testing purposes", however an attacker can use it to DoS somebody else's email address.

Likewise, how do I keep from getting junk mail? Here are four ways to reduce the volume of unwanted mail delivered by USPS:

  1. Opt out of prescreened credit card and insurance offers.
  2. Tell the Data and Marketing Association to bug off.
  3. Ban smaller marketers and “prospect” catalogs.
  4. Do it yourself, piece by piece.

In respect to this, is it against the law to use someone else's email address?

It's not illegal with the owner's permission. However, you do have to be aware that the user of an email account is not necessarily the owner of the account.
