A spam filter is a software app that runs on a mail server and monitors all inbound email messages to block any unsolicited ones from reaching a certain inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking statements or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Email filters normally check the content of an email message and if they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.
