An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all inbound messages so as to block any unwelcome ones from reaching a specific mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email message and if they detect certain keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each cloud web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the five levels of security that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have selected. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the email messages that the anti-spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or re-sent to some other email account where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to a different level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also pretty easy.
