A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all inbound emails to prevent any undesired ones from entering a certain inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your PC. Email filters usually check the content of an email and if they spot some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
