New Servage Hosting account – New state of the art Spam filtering

Wednesday, August 7th, 2019 by Helge

What is spam filtering?stop
A spam filter is a program that is used to detect unsolicited and unwanted email and prevent those messages from getting to a user’s inbox. And the process is known as spam filtering. There are many spam filtering solutions available. They can be hosted in the “cloud,” on computer servers, or integrated into email software such as Microsoft Outlook.

How do spam filters work?
Spam filters use the method where each email message is subjected to thousands of predefined rules (algorithms). Each rule assigns a numerical score to the probability of the message being spam, and if the score passes a certain threshold the email is flagged as spam and blocked from going further.

There are different types of spam filters for different criteria:

  • Content filters – parse the content of messages, scanning for words that are commonly used in spam emails.
  • Header filters – examine the email header source to look for suspicious information (such as spammer e-mail addresses).
  • Blacklist filters – stop e-mails that come from a blacklist of suspicion IP addresses.
  • Some filters go further and check the IP reputation of the IP address Rules based filters – apply customized rules designed by the organization to exclude emails from specific senders, or emails  containing specific words in their subject line or body.

What does the term ‘state-of-the-art’ refer?
It refers to the highest level of general development, as of a device, technique, or scientific field achieved at a particular time. It also refers to such a level of development reached at any particular time as a result of the common methodologies employed at the time. Our new state of the art Spam filtering is a technique where we don’t block any mails, all the mails are delivered at your mail box unless the mail is a real spam mail. Please note that in the new system we have default Spamassassin rules/Antivirus (ClamAV, CYREN, Sophos). So, to avoid spam or blacklist an email address on new system, you will have to use the webmail filter option. This should be effective in eliminating spams.  Servage hopes below links will help: Webmail Filter, AntiSpam Filter

Additionally, we also ask you to check our HELPDESK  for other posts  as well – you find hundrets of useful posts about our new Servage control panel in that system!
