A New York Federal court has sentenced a New Jersey man, Todd Moeller, to more than 2 years in prison for sending unsolicited emails in violation of U.S. anti-spam laws. Moeller sent emails advertising a computer security system to more than a million addresses of AOL subscribers as part of a deal that would see him get fifty per cent of the profits. The deal had been made with a government informant. Moeller and the co-accused had earlier pleaded guilty to breaking the anti-spam laws and defeating AOL’s filter system by using multiple computer servers and altering the email header information in order to conceal the source of the email.
