A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and monitors all inbound emails to obstruct any unwelcome ones from reaching a given mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your PC. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and when they detect given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every cloud hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the content of every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve selected. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select if the emails that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be erased or redirected to a different email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the spam protection is also stunningly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans offer second-to-none spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which sorts all incoming messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between five separate levels of security – from very high to very low. If you still get spam emails, you can raise the level, or if authentic emails are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased right away or if they should be delivered to a designated email address where you can view them later, so as to make certain that valuable email messages will not get lost.
