A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound messages in order to stop any unrequested ones from reaching a particular mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Email filters typically examine the content of an email message and in case they spot particular keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting
package from our company and if you use our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks, you can choose between 5 different levels of safety. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom email filters and either delete unwelcome messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address like firstname.lastname@example.org where you can examine them once again later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to make use of the mail service that is offered with our semi-dedicated plans
, you can keep all unsolicited email messages away from your inbox by activating the five-level spam protection service that we provide with each semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be achieved via the full-featured Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we provide the best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different level of protection for each email account and you can select whether the filtered email messages should be erased or re-sent to some other mailbox where you can review them later in order to ensure that you won’t lose legitimate email messages. Switching to some other protection level or deactivating the protection is also easy and takes a few clicks.
