Unlike other email programs that usually use one vendor to help fight spam, Thexyz utilizes a multi-layer email spam filter to help block unwanted messages from reaching your inbox. Personalized spam is becoming a larger problem as cyber criminals send spam with increasingly greater sophistication. A simple spam blocker is no longer sufficient to stop spam. This is why you need an advanced, 4 layer, machine learning solution to filter incoming email with accuracy that keeps getting better.
We combined the best of our threat scanning capabilities with industry leaders in anti spam and virus protection. Before a message enters your mailbox, it undergoes four independent, threat blocking scans to identify spam:
Threats blocked by Gateway
Threats blocked by CloudMark
Threats blocked by Message Sniffer
Threats blocked by Clam AV
Thexyz Support is available to help you manage your spam settings, diagnose bounce messages and block senders. We also have some anwsers to some common questions about spam.

Content filtering combines many techniques to analyze email structure and content, and creates key indicators that identify patterns in email. These indicators are combined with industry-wide feedback from email providers across the internet about reported spam, email phishing, and viruses. The end result is an accurate, adaptive, and evolving content filtering system that is highly effective at blocking spam.
Email administrators can upload an csv file of email address, domain names or IP addresses to blacklist/safelist in the control panel. This feature is only available with email hosting on your own domain.
