A spam filter is a software app that is installed on a mail server and monitors all incoming email messages so as to hinder any unwelcome ones from reaching a specific inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your PC. Email filters normally examine the content of an email and if they come across specific keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a cloud website hosting package from us and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks, you can choose between 5 different levels of protection. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either delete unsolicited messages or send them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once more after that.
