A spam filter is a software application that obstructs unwanted emails from entering a given mailbox. An immense percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s very important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

In case you still get spam or the filters start preventing authentic emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping a genuine email message that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and re-send the emails to another email account where you can read them at a later point in time.
