An email filter is a software app that impedes unwanted messages from reaching a given inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s quite important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver better security – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.
