The company believes the messages were a part of a suspected Iranian campaign to influence this year’s presidential race.

On Wednesday the Director of National Intelligence reported that Iran was caught posing as the far-right group; Proud Boys and sending intimidating e-mails to voters.

According to Google, 90% of the e-mails were stopped by spam filters.
