In recent years, online spam has become a major problem for
the sustainability of the Internet. Excessive amounts of spam
are not only reducing the quality of information available on
the Internet but also creating concern amongst search engines
and web users. This paper aims to analyse existing works in
two different categories of spam domains - email spam and
image spam to gain a deeper understanding of this problem.
Future research directions are also presented in these spam
domains.
