Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. For this reason, many email providers resort to spam filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound email messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email message contains and how many times they’re mentioned, what web site a certain hyperlink points to, what server the email message is sent from, etc. Some hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about undesirable email messages, to make sure that their customers won’t receive any email in their mailbox that should not be there.
