An email filter is a software app that obstructs unwanted emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it is pretty important to activate filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of security – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosting providers often use the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
