An email filter is an app that prevents unwanted emails from reaching a given inbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is extremely important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
