Find out more about spam filters - just what they are, the way they work and ways to create one.
A spam filter is a software application that obstructs unasked-for messages from reaching a given inbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it is rather important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s mail server. Hosting providers often make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words.
