What exactly is an e-mail spam filter? How does one operate? How can you enable spam filtering?
Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. For this reason, plenty of email service providers use spam filters, which are software applications that keep track of all inbound emails and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how many times they are mentioned, what site a particular link leads to, what mail server the message comes from, etc. Some providers also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unasked-for email messages, to ensure that their clients will not receive any email in their inbox that should not be there.
