Spam filters and virus scanners
- Hoststar’s spam protection was written by our highly experienced server administrators and support teams and scans all incoming emails.
- In addition to this, Hoststar’s black list is synchronised with three international anti-spam databases. This ensures a reliable and effective spam blocker. By adding relevant spam servers (open relay servers) to the black list, entire waves of spam can be stopped.
- The Hoststar OCR spam filter (optical character recognition software for images) recognises spam emails that are based on graphics and reliably filters them out.
- Hoststar’s virus scanner checks all emails for viruses and automatically deletes infected emails.
- Hoststar’s FTP virus protection thoroughly checks every file uploaded and downloaded to our servers and only saves them when it is sure they are not infected.
