A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on a mail server and monitors all incoming emails so as to hinder any unwelcome ones from entering a particular inbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your computer. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email and if they come across given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
The protection of any email account that you set up in a web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each email message in accordance with various criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may skip an authentic message, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a specific sender to a different email address. If you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited email messages out of your inbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any time. You can also fine-tune the level of safety with several mouse clicks if junk messages continue to appear in your mailbox or the spam filter begins removing genuine emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased instantly or delivered to a different email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email that you require. The email messages that the filter permits to proceed will still be received in your mailbox.
