Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – undesirable messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get conned. That is why, numerous email providers rely on email filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound email messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they’re cited, what site a particular hyperlink points to, what outgoing email server the email message comes from, etc. Some hosting companies also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unwelcome email messages, to make sure that their clients won’t get any message in their mailbox that should not be there.
