What do you do when there's a new email in your inbox saying that you've won a few thousand dollars and all you have to do is furnish your bank details so that they can transfer the money to your bank account.
Gmail's built-in spam protection system is smart at spotting junk messages but it can sometimes mark even legitimate emails as spam. It is therefore necessary that one should always scan the junk folder manually for any important messages before emptying it.
According to Trend Micro, India now has the dubious distinction of being the 7th largest spam sender in the world and largest in Asia. Russia (11.92 %), United States (9.36 %) and Brazil (7.48 %) hold the top 3 positions.
Research shows that between 65% and 88% of emails received is considered to be spam. Spam continues to be a headache for administrators and end-users because spammers are constantly trying to stay one step ahead of anti-spam software vendors.
