An email filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all inbound emails to prevent any undesired ones from reaching a particular mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Email filters usually check the content of an email message and in case they detect given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.
