An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound messages in order to stop any unwanted ones from reaching a certain mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to infect your computer. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email message and if they spot particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
