What's an e-mail spam filter? How does it function? How to activate spam filtering?
A spam filter is a software app that hinders undesirable email messages from entering a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s rather important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
