An email filter is a software app that runs on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming email messages in order to prevent any unwelcome ones from entering a given inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of damaging your computer. Spam filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email message and if they come across particular keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our cloud hosting service, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any mailbox that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different protection levels. If you still get junk messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection service is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a genuine message that may be regarded as spam due to its content, you can also create custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to another email account where you can view them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you reach the decision to use the mail service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all undesired messages out of your mailbox by activating the 5-level spam protection service that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting package. This can be achieved via the feature-stuffed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin filter to make certain that we provide the very best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted or forwarded to some other email address where you can read them at a later time in order to make sure that you won’t miss legitimate emails. Switching to another level of protection or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires several clicks of the mouse.
