Find out more on spam filters - what they are, the way they work and the way to create one.
Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. undesired messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. This is the reason why a lot of mail service providers make use of spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message consists of and how often they’re referred to, what site a particular link opens, what SMTP mail server the message comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unasked-for messages, to make certain that their customers will not receive any email message in their inbox that should not be there.

The quality of our spam filtering service is ensured by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin.
