Learn more about spam filters - precisely what they are, the way they work and the way to set up one.
A spam filter is an app that prevents unwanted email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. This is why, it’s quite important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – 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 SMTP email server. Web hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
