Those pesky unsolicited emails can be more than just a pain, but they can actually be of harm to your security and to your computer, as well as taking up a small amount of bandwidth on your internet connection.
There are several different ways that anyone can go about achieving spam filter solutions.
Your most common options are the spam filter appliances, software and service, also known as hosted or off site spam filters.
The appliances work by physically attaching something to your computer to sift through the spam.
The software works basically the same, by installing it on your computer or mainframe and then allowing it to filter through the mail.
The spam filter services work a little differently because they work from an off-site location.
How Spam Filters Really Work
All of the mail is routed through to them and then filtered, then eventually sent on.
This may cost a monthly fee but can be very cost effective for enterprise corporations, large businesses and companies.
Having the mail scrubbed at an off-site location decreases the risk of any security problems or viruses being able to get through.
Whatever the case may be, we all will have to deal with spam as long as we function with an email account or work online.
Though most internet providers (ISPs) do not allow it, it will be something that plagues us which is why these spam filter solutions are so important.
For small businesses or personal use freeware may be the best way to go, but it may be a good idea to read some reviews and test some for yourself.
This will give you an idea of what the best option is for you and/or your business.
