A spam filter is a software app that is installed on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming messages in order to hinder any unasked-for ones from entering a particular mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking statements or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Email filters normally examine the content of an email and if they detect specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently detected 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’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can select between five different safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of every message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or permits it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either erase undesirable messages or forward them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them once again after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages come with first-rate anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all incoming emails based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 separate levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you continue to get spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are tagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted instantly or if they should be re-sent to a designated email address where you can view them at a later time, so as to ensure that important emails will not disappear.
