An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all incoming emails in order to hinder any unrequested ones from entering a certain inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Email filters usually check the content of an email and in case they detect certain keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.
