An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and monitors all incoming email messages so as to block any unasked-for ones from reaching a certain inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your PC. Spam filters typically check the content of an email and if they detect certain keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with us and you choose any of our cloud hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any email address that you create. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 different security levels. In case you continue to receive junk email messages or the filters start preventing authentic email messages from reaching your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping a legitimate email message that may be considered as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to a different email account where you can read them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver first-rate anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 separate safety levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive junk messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic emails are labeled 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 email messages should be erased right away or if they should be redirected to a designated email address where you can read them later, so as to ensure that valuable emails won’t disappear.
