A spam filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all incoming email messages in order to hinder any unwanted ones from reaching a certain mailbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your PC. Spam filters usually check the content of an email and in case they detect certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

The efficiency of our spam detection service is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin.
