What's an e-mail spam filter? How does one operate? How could you enable spam filtering?
An email filter is a software application that impedes undesirable emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it is really important to enable filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words.
