An email filter is a software app that prevents undesired email messages from entering a given mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is rather important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide better safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
