An email filter is a software application that’s installed on an email server and keeps track of all incoming email messages in order to impede any unrequested ones from entering a certain inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Email filters normally examine the content of an email message and if they spot some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.
