A spam filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and monitors all incoming messages so as to obstruct any unrequested ones from reaching a certain inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your PC. Spam filters usually check the content of an email message and when they spot particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.
