Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, what they do and how to activate them.
Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unsolicited messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be duped. This is why, numerous email providers make use of spam filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all incoming email messages and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how many times they’re mentioned, what web site a certain link opens, what outgoing SMTP mail server the email message is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about undesired emails, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
