We get a huge number of junk emails, daily. They are promotional messages sent by the companies, websites and marketing agencies to keep you updated with their latest news and offers. Most of them are irrelevant to us. But still, they fill your inbox unnecessarily and hide some important emails that you are waiting for in between them. As a result of that, you may miss a critical message from a client company or boss.
If you are not familiar with online marketing strategies, may ask why such emails arrive in my inbox?
