Spamtrap

Hey folks,

Just stumbled upon this term "spamtrap" and I'm scratching my head about what it really is. I get that it's something to do with email security, but beyond that, I'm lost. Can anyone break it down for me? Like, what are they exactly, and how do they work? Also, do they affect email marketing stuff in any big way? Would really appreciate any simple explanations or pointers!

"A spamtrap is a honeypot used to collect spam.

Spamtraps are usually e-mail addresses that are created not for communication, but rather to lure spam.
