An email filter is an app that hinders unwanted email messages from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is rather important to enable filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver better security – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
