A spam filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and keeps track of all inbound emails so as to block any unwelcome ones from entering a certain inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention of infecting your PC. Email filters typically check the content of an email message and if they spot certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
If you get a cloud web hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can select between five different safety levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either erase undesirable email messages or send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once again afterwards.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans provide top-class spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which rates all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five separate levels of safety – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine email messages are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a designated email account where you can review them later, so as to make sure that important messages will not get lost.
