An email filter is a software application that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages in order to obstruct any unrequested ones from reaching a certain mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your PC. Email filters normally check the content of an email and in case they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.
