An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a mail server and monitors all inbound messages to impede any unwelcome ones from entering a certain inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to infect your PC. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email message and in case they come across given keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.
