Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unwanted messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. That is why, plenty of email service providers make use of email filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones based on their content – what words an email message consists of and how often they are cited, what web site a specific hyperlink opens, what email server the email message comes from, etc. Some web hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unsolicited email messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
