Most of the emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unrequested messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get duped. That’s why, a lot of email service providers make use of spam filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how many times they’re cited, what web site a particular link redirects to, what SMTP email server the message comes from, and so on. Certain companies also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unwanted email messages, to make sure that their customers won’t get any message in their inbox that should not be there.

If you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with just several mouse clicks.
