An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound email messages to impede any unwanted ones from reaching a particular inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to infect your personal computer. Email filters typically examine the content of an email and in case they detect 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. Certain companies combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.
