What are Email Spam Filters?

Spam email filters are software that routinely delete incoming spam email and divert in into your "junk" mailbox. Spam filters, also called "spam blockers", are built into a user's email program. They can also be built into a mail server in which case the spam never reaches the user's mailbox. Email spam filters can trap messages based on different criteria including a sender's email address, specific keywords in the message text or subject of the email, or by the kind of attachment with the message.
