Content filtering is a way you can control how emails sent to you are sorted. There are various categories you can utilize to sort your incoming emails, such as emails from a specific sender or domain, emails that contain attachments, emails containing certain words, and much more. There are also various actions you can take on these filtered emails, such as marking as read, moving, deleting, and much more.
