Spam Filter

A Spam Filter is a program used to detect unsolicited and unwanted emails and prevent those messages from getting to a user’s inbox.

A spam filter searches for specific criteria on which it bases judgments.

More sophisticated programs, such as Bayesian filters or other heuristic filters, identify spam through suspicious word patterns or word frequency.
