A spam filter is a software app that runs on an email server and keeps track of all inbound messages in order to impede any unrequested ones from entering a particular mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your personal computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email and if they spot some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
