Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get duped. This is why, plenty of email service providers resort to spam filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how many times they’re mentioned, what web site a given hyperlink redirects to, what outbound SMTP email server the message comes from, etc. Some hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about undesirable email messages, to ensure that their customers will not get any email message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.
