An email filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and keeps track of all incoming email messages so as to prevent any unrequested ones from entering a given mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to damage your computer. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email and when they come across specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies mix 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 include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
