Unlike spam, which is unsolicited commercial e-mail (UCE), meatloaf is unsolicited personal e-mail. It's circulated by friends or office mates via group e-mail lists. Meatloaf consists of jokes, anecdotes, and other trivia. The term is a variation on spam to reflect that these messages are "homemade."
