An email filter is a software app that prevents undesired email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s really important to activate filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of safety – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words.
