Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get tricked. That’s why, plenty of email service providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email includes and how often they’re referred to, what website a specific hyperlink points to, what outgoing SMTP server the email comes from, and so on. Certain companies also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unsolicited emails, to ensure that their clients won’t get any message in their mailbox that should not be there.
