Even if you clear out your email inbox at the end of each workday, chances are it will be full again by the time you arrive back to work in the morning. A report done back in March of 2018 estimated that there are more than 281 BILLION emails sent every day worldwide. And that number is expected to skyrocket to 333 BILLION by 2022.
These numbers are staggering! In fact, it is estimated that the average office employee receives 121 emails each day, with almost half of those being spam (45% of emails). However, even with all of this daily email burden, this form of communication is not going away anytime soon. The best way to make email more productive in business is to filter out junk emails before they reach your inbox.
Email filtering services can give you the power to take back your workday, rather than wasting your precious time:
- Deleting spam emails
- Inadvertently opening dangerous, virus-infected emails
- Trying to locate the important emails that demand your attention
Email filtering not only improves employee productivity, it can also improve the performance of your network because the junk emails will not be taking up valuable space.
How Email Filtering Works
Every incoming email message is examined using specific criteria that you specify. For example, you can choose to filter messages from specific sources/addresses, messages that contain specific words, messages with no content, phishing messages, etc. Emails that meet these criteria or look untrustworthy will be automatically placed into a junk or spam folder, allowing only the healthy emails to enter your active email area.
Of course, there is no absolute guarantee that an email filter will stop every junk email from entering your inbox, but having a reliable filter in place can be your first line of defense. There are a variety of email filters from which to choose, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. It may be helpful to hire an IT services company to help you determine your needs, identify the best resources and manage the implementation process.
