How to configure different types of spam filters in TechGenie Total Security and Absolute?

Are you looking for solution to configure different types of spam filters in your TechGenie Total Security and TechGenie Absolute? Well, look no further than here. You can easily configure different types of spam filters and examine the e-mails coming in your inbox. But, before you start the process, let us tell you that Spam Filter triggers the Antispam engine to automatically start to examine and filter incoming mail messages based on numerous attributes in every e-mail such as header, content, characters and advertising links.
 

The TechGenie Antispam Engine incorporates several different filters that attempts to ensure that your Inbox is Spam-free. These includes, Heuristic Filter, Link Filter, and Filter E- mail with Asian characters, Filter E- mail with Cyrillic characters and Filter E- mail with explicit content.
 

Here’s how these filters work:

Heuristic Filter
: The Heuristic filter performs a set of tests on all the message components, (i.e. not only the header but also the message body in either HTML or text format), look for words, phrases, links or other characteristics of SPAM.

Link Filter: Almost all spam messages include links to various web locations and such locations usually contain more advertising and the possibility to buy things, and, sometimes, they are used for phishing too. The Link filter checks every URL link in a message against its database and tag it as SPAM, in case any match is made.

 

Filter E-mail with Asian Characters: This feature detects spam messages written in characters from Asian language and tag them as SPAM.

Filter E-mail with Cyrillic Characters: This feature detects spam messages written in characters from Russian characters and tag them as SPAM. 

Filter E-mail with Explicit Characters: The filter detects messages marked as SEXUALLY-EXPLICIT in the subject line and tags them as SPAM.

To configure different types of spam filters, follow these steps:
 

1. Open Antivirus window.

2. Click “Antispam” tab on the upper toolbar.

3. In the General Settings window, select “Spam Filter” button.

4. Choose from the following Spam filters that suits your security needs:
 

  • Heuristic Filter
  • Link Filter
  • Filter E- mail with Asian characters
  • Filter E- mail with Cyrillic characters
  • Filter E- mail with explicit content.

 

So, now you know how to configure different types of spam filters in TechGenie Total Security and Absolute. While following the steps above, keep in mind that the filters can be turned off independently from the Antispam protection.
