Find out more on spam filters - exactly what they are, the way they work and ways to create one.
An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a mail server and monitors all incoming messages in order to hinder any unsolicited ones from entering a specific inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your computer. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
The protection of any mailbox that you set up under a cloud web hosting
account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of security based on the spam score given to each and every message depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may skip a genuine email message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a given sender to a different email account. If you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a certain mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a few mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
plans provide top-class spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 different levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive spam, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted immediately or if they should be delivered to a chosen email account where you can examine them later, so as to ensure that important email messages won’t get lost.
