An email filter is a software application that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and keeps track of all inbound emails so as to prevent any unasked-for ones from entering a particular mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your personal computer. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email message and in case they spot specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
