A spam filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound email messages so as to impede any unrequested ones from entering a certain inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Email filters usually check the content of an email message and when they come across some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a cloud website hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate levels of security. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous email filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of every email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to create custom filters and either eliminate undesired email messages or send them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them once again at a later point in time.
