Find out about spam filters - exactly what they are, how they work and the ways to set up one.
An email filter is a software app that blocks unwelcome messages from entering a given inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is rather important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies often make use of the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words.
