How can I filter spam?

Our hosting control panel comes equipped with 2 applications that will help you prevent spam:

  • BoxTrapper — BoxTrapper works through “challenge-response” verification. When an email is sent to an account that has enabled BoxTrapper, a verification email is automatically sent in response. At this point, the sender will need to respond to the verification email so that his or her address is whitelisted and able to send mail to your email account.
  • SpamAssassin — SpamAssassin is an email utility that attempts to filter spam by examining incoming email and testing for spam characteristics. The testing results in an overall score. If an incoming message reaches or exceeds a predefined score, the message is discarded.
