An email filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all incoming email messages in order to obstruct any unwelcome ones from entering a certain inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to infect your computer. Email filters normally examine the content of an email message and if they detect particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the 5 levels of safety that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you’ve opted for. Every email account can have a different level and you can select whether the email messages that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a separate email account where you can review them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email. Changing the level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also stunningly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages come with first-class anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five separate levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you still receive spam messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are labeled as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased momentarily or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email account where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that valuable email messages won’t get lost.
