A spam filter is an application that stops undesired messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s very important to use email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s mail server. Hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

The efficiency of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing a genuine email message that may be considered spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and redirect the emails to another email address where you can read them at a later point in time.
