Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. 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 conned. That’s why, plenty of email providers use spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all incoming emails and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they are mentioned, what web site a given hyperlink leads to, what SMTP mail server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some web hosts also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome emails, to ensure that their clients won’t get any email in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.
