An email filter is a software app that is installed on an email server and keeps track of all incoming email messages so as to block any unasked-for ones from entering a specific inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Email filters normally examine the content of an email and when they come across given keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.
