what IS a filtering system anyway?
A filter is basically a program that accepts, rejects, reroutes,
etc. mail messages. The program essentially looks for key
words or phrases in the mail message and then follows the
instructions as to what to do with the message. Email addresses and
the wording of error messages are examples of the types of
key words or phrases.
