By using all the best methods to block spam, CleanMailPro provides comprehensive spam-blocking and anti-virus protection for your company. Below are the primary algorithms we employ to block spam. We generally target approximately 99% blockage.
CleanMailPro maintains an up-to-date list of the largest and most aggressive known spammers. This list is maintained by both CleanMailPro and other anti-spam groups. This list is automatically updated on each CleanMailPro Spam Firewall.
Our scanning methods include a scoring system such that emails are scored based on a number of criteria. If the score is above a threshold, then that email is flagged as spam. The CleanMailPro team constantly monitors and updates these keywords based on current activity so there is virtually no lost messages.
CleanMailPro monitors email traffic through the Internet and uses checksum technology to keep track of the number of times a particular message has appeared on the Internet. If a message has appeared over a certain number of times, it is categorized as known spam. Checksums of known spam messages are utilized by CleanMailPro to block spam messages.
In addition to anti-spam protection, CleanMailPro provides protection against e-mail based threats such as malicious viruses and worms, which is where 95%+ of the viruses originate. This additional measure is built-in to our service and updates on a hourly basis to ensure the latest definitions are in place.
