What's an e-mail spam filter? How does one work? How to enable spam filtering?
Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – undesired messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may get conned. That is why, many email providers make use of spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a certain hyperlink opens, what outbound email server the email is sent from, etc. Certain web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unsolicited email messages, to ensure that their customers won’t get any email in their inbox that should not be there.
