A spam filter is an application that obstructs unsolicited email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s pretty important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide better safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Hosting companies frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
