Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be ripped off. This is why, a lot of mail service providers resort to spam filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all inbound email messages and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email includes and how often they are referred to, what website a certain hyperlink redirects to, what outbound SMTP email server the email is sent from, etc. Certain providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unrequested emails, to make certain that their clients won’t get any message in their inbox that should not be there.
