A spam filter is a software application that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages so as to block any unwanted ones from entering a particular inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Email filters typically examine the content of an email message and in case they spot given keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Hosting
In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our hosting services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any email account that you create. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate levels of security. In case you continue to get unsolicited bulk email messages or the spam filters start preventing genuine emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping a legitimate message that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and forward the emails to a separate email account where you can examine them at a later time.
