An email filter is a software app that prevents unwanted email messages from entering a given inbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is very important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound email server. Hosting providers frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words.
