An email filter is a software application that impedes unwanted email messages from reaching a given mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s rather important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
