Why do we need filters
Mail services use default anti-spam filters. They are quite effective: Gmail filters almost do not miss spam, and Mail.ru filters often delay even the necessary messages. However, the default protection is powerless against the automatic distribution of services and resources that you use and to which you yourself subscribed.

Social networks, payment systems, forums, network services send you dozens of letters. They distract you and litter your box. You do not dare to send them to spam, because you are afraid to miss something important. With the help of filters you can automatically place such messages in separate tabs or folders.
