An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages in order to obstruct any unsolicited ones from reaching a certain inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your personal computer. Spam filters usually check the content of an email message and in case they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
