A spam filter is an application that blocks undesired emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s pretty important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosts frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
