A spam filter is a software app that is installed on an email server and monitors all inbound messages to obstruct any undesirable ones from reaching a specific inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email message and if they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting package from us and if you use our mail services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can pick between 5 separate levels of safety. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of every email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom spam filters and either get rid of undesirable emails or re-send them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them once more after that.
