Spam email advertising has become very popular lately because everyone has an email account. As people are getting more and more spam messages, however, they are becoming more and more immune to spam and tend to delete or mark as spam without reading any messages that come from unknown senders and only read messages that come from addresses on their contacts list. Since an advertisement that is not read or viewed is useless, spam email advertising is becoming less effective.

Which of the following strategies, if feasible, would be most likely to improve the effectiveness of spam email advertising?
(A)Creating catchy titles for the subject field of spam messages.
(B)Writing special programs that would allow your spam advertising messages to get to the users’ inboxes without being marked as spam by email providers.
(C)Using real people’s names for email accounts from which spam advertising is sent so that it is shown in the sender field of the message received by the recipient.
(D)Providing honest and useful information in spam advertising messages.
(E)Writing special programs that would make spam advertising messages look as if they were sent from someone from the recipients’ contacts lists.

CONCLUSION: spam email advertising is becoming less effective.
PREMISE 1:People are becoming more and more immune to spam and tend to delete or mark as spam without reading any messages that come from unknown senders and only read messages that come from addresses on their contacts list
PREMISE 2: an advertisement that is not read or viewed is useless

So until and unless messages are not read they are ineffective.
and all messages coming from outside the contact list are unread.

so to make effective : messages should be such that it would appear that they are coming from addresses that are in the contact list.

option E clearly says that.
hence IMO E.
