Find out more about spam filters - what they are, the way they work and the ways to set up one.
A spam filter is a software application that stops undesired email messages from reaching a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is really important to set up filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s email server. Web hosts frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering better and easier without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
