With the increase in use of internet the modes of connectivity and the measures for connectivity have increased. Internet has packed whole world into small packets. The mail services have increased so far that the crowd gathered at the post office has turned into traffic for any particular mail website and the post box at the door is turned into the inbox or mailbox. It has reduced the time consumed to convey the message to your dear ones. Traditional method of mailing took several days but today it merely takes seconds to reach the destination.
The unique security system and features:
Offering so many of benefits it has one more advantage over traditional mailing system. In traditional mailing system you could not block someone to post you letters; even if you do not want him to do so. But in electronic mails, there are spam filters which filter the unwanted messages or mails to get in front of your eyes. It is that program which on a certain criteria detects the unsolicited messages from getting into the inbox. Every mailing website has a different spam filter and every spam filter has different judgment criteria to check whether the message is unwanted or not. There are programs like Bayesian filters which work efficiently in order to detect unwanted messages and move to the spam box. Some of the spam filters are not that efficient i.e. they do a false spam and sometimes omit genuine messages due to inaccuracy.
Just as guards stand at your house’s door to look after and do not allow any unknown person or any disturbing element to enter, spam filters also stand at your inbox’s door to check whether the message is all right for inbox or not. The spam filters are just like the high profile security system which keep you isolated from any abused content. These filters work automatically, you don’t need to turn them on. And you will never see them working, they just work in background. It examines every incoming mail and decides it is appropriate for inbox or not. Even some of the spam filters have the option of preview so that you can check yourself whether you want to move it to spam or not. This means after detecting any unwanted message it will ask your confirmation.
Sometimes the basic filters fail in doing their work so in order to increase efficiency; some newly programmed filters use a number of additional filters merged in them to filter the content. Which means the programming function of spam filters can be made more accurate by customizing the filter configuration and adding more plug-in.
In some mailing websites like Gmail you can create your own filter according to your search criteria by following some simple steps
- Go on the settings button
- Click on filters
- Now edit or delete option will appear, if you want to edit any filter then update it or remove it.
You can create as many filters do you want, figure does not matter.
Another feature is you can also share filters with your friends. If your friend is having any filter and you feel like installing that one to your mail account then just click on the import button on the bottom of page (inside the filter button clicked earlier). Import the xml file and click on open file then create filters, and you are ready to go. Similarly you can export filters.
