Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. This is why, many email providers use spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how many times they are referred to, what site a particular hyperlink redirects to, what SMTP email server the email is sent from, etc. Certain web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unrequested messages, to make certain that their customers will not receive any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.
