An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all inbound messages to impede any unwanted ones from entering a given mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to infect your PC. Email filters normally check the content of an email and if they spot particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
