Find out more about spam filters - what exactly they are, the way they work and how to set up one.
An email filter is an app that stops unsolicited emails from reaching a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s extremely important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
