Web Mail Filter for mails is an efficient and popular communication medium. Like every powerful medium it is prone to be misused. One such case of misuse is the posting of unsolicited emails known as spam.
Spam messages are typically sent using bulk mailers and address lists obtained from web pages and newsgroup archives. They vary significantly in content, from vacation deals to real estate to pornography. Since these mails are unsolicited they are the least important to the reader and most of the people would prefer not to have their “inbox” cluttered with junk mail. In some cases Spam may cause harm as pornographic content could be seen by underage users or worse yet it might contain malicious viruses. Spam is not only annoying but also time consuming as it could take a while to sort through the messages and delete the ones that are unsolicited and worthless.
It is a customizable application so that the user can enter the Spam mail filter specifications like email id from which he doesn’t want any mails, the subject of the mail with which no mails should be received, and any keywords in the mail which should not be present.

At present most of the people are using Internet all over the world in their daily life. One of the main reasons is it provides fastest communication between the people through Emails. We can receive a no. of mails from our friends, relatives, customers etc. When we receive a large no. of mails from others, there will be some problems may occur.
WEB MAIL FILTERS for mails is one way to reduce the impact of the problem on the individual user. In its simplest form, this filter is a mechanism for classifying message as either spam or non-spam. This project and implimentation is for the employees working in an organization.
WEB MAIL FILTERS for mails is a fast spam filter that works by learning to recognize the words that are more likely to appear as spam than non-spam. It uses a set of tokens, which are stored in a database, that were taken from the users. When any mail arrives it checks the mail against the tokens specified by the user to whom it comes. If they match then it mark the mail as “spam”, later this mail will be sent to a location where all spam mails are stored. This process segregates spam and non-spam mails and passes them to appropriate locations.
The Mail Filter project and implimentation consists of three modules:
This module deals with the management of the application by a person called Administrator who is responsible for taking all the mails coming to the people working in the organization, and invoking the filtering mechanism. He can also specify UBL IP addresses and Universal Virus definitions in order to protect the systems from attack.
This module deals with user processing. In this module user can specify what he doesn’t want, such as the mails coming with a specific subject like “free offer”, the mails coming from the specific Email Ids, and the mails coming from the systems with specific IP address etc. The user can also specify virus definitions or keywords to prevent the mails containing those viruses and keywords. If the user wants only those mails whose size is below some limit, then the user can specify the size limit for the mails. Moreover, the user can also edit or delete the filters that are previously specified.
This module deals with the major task of Mail Filter. It checks the incoming mails for each user against the filters specified by the administrator and by the users. If any match found, then it treats that mail as “spam” and moves that mail to another location. It also stores the details such as Email address, Subject, Date and size of all the mails, both spam and non-spam, in the database for future reference.
