Most of the emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. This is why, lots of email service providers use spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how many times they’re cited, what website a specific hyperlink points to, what outgoing mail server the email message comes from, etc. Certain hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date information about undesired email messages, to ensure that their clients won’t get any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
