An email filter is a software application that stops unsolicited email messages from reaching a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is pretty important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
