An email filter is an app that hinders undesirable email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is rather important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Hosting companies often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words.
