Learn more about spam filters - what exactly they are, how they work and ways to set up one.
An email filter is an application that hinders unwelcome messages from reaching a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s really important to set up email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosts often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic email messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
