A spam filter is a software application that runs on a mail server and monitors all inbound emails so as to block any unwanted ones from reaching a given inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Email filters usually examine the content of an email message and if they come across specific keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.

The efficiency of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing an authentic email that may be considered as spam due to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to another mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time.
