An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all incoming email messages in order to hinder any undesirable ones from reaching a particular inbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your PC. Email filters usually examine the content of an email and in case they detect specific keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.
