A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on an email server and monitors all incoming emails to block any undesirable ones from entering a particular mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to damage your computer. Email filters normally check the content of an email and when they come across specific keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.
