Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. That is why, plenty of email providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that monitor all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they’re cited, what website a particular link opens, what outgoing SMTP server the email message comes from, and so on. Some providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwelcome emails, to ensure that their customers won’t get any message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
