An email filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and keeps track of all incoming email messages in order to obstruct any unasked-for ones from entering a specific mailbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email and in case they spot certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the 5 protection levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the body of each email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have picked. Each email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the emails that the spam filter labels as spam should be erased or re-sent to another mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also rather easy.
