A spam filter is an application that blocks unsolicited emails from entering a given mailbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s pretty important to use email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver better safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
