Find out more about spam filters - exactly what they are, the way they work and the way to create one.
An email filter is an application that stops unsolicited emails from entering a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s extremely important to set up filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to ensure better security – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
