Spam refers to sending of large number of unsolicited, irrelevant commercial emails. Spamming refers to bombarding disinterested recipients with unwanted emails.
The CAN-SPAM Act 2003 was passed to regulate the flow of emails and give the recipient the right to unsubscribe from mailing list.
The act specifies the rules for sending commercial emails and messages and restricts businesses from sending unsolicited emails.
It applies to all commercial emails that contain advertisements or promotional emails.
Because it impacts deliverability. When an email is initially identified as spam by a filter, the message is pushed to the spam folder. This means that your mail has literally zero chances of being read. Repeatedly being identified as spam can result in your mailbox/ip address being blocked.
The SPAM act gives recipients the right to stop exit from mailing lists and prevent businesses from contacting them.
