A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all incoming messages to prevent any unrequested ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email message and when they come across particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you order a website hosting
package from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 separate levels of protection. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each and every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email or allows it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to configure custom filters and either eliminate undesirable messages or forward them to a third-party address such as firstname.lastname@example.org where you can read them again later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to use the mail service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
, you can keep all unsolicited messages out of your inbox by activating the 5-level spam protection service that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be accomplished through the feature-packed Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin filter to make sure that we provide the best possible security for our clients. You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can choose whether the filtered messages should be deleted or re-sent to a different mailbox where you can check them at a later time to make certain that you won’t lose authentic messages. Switching to some other level of protection or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and requires a few clicks of the mouse.
