    Jan 1 2004 is when the CAN SPAM Act took affect.

    Basically giving people permission to SPAM as long as they have their "business address" in the email. I think that's pretty much how it went.

    Both the sender of the email AND the company being adverised must include opt-out links as well. So if you get an email from a big mailer you don't want to hear from, about a product you couldn't care less about, you should be able to opt-out of both lists. You should then never get another ad for that product, not get another email from that mailing list.

    That works nice for those following the rules, and there are many that do follow those rules.

    The real problem is that "real spam" (the kind that promotes penis enlargement, or cialis, or whatever's in your inbox lately without your permissions) follows no rules. They obtain your email address through dubious methods, send the spam through viruses... god knows what else. There's really not much that can stop them.
