An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming messages to hinder any unrequested ones from reaching a specific mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to infect your personal computer. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email and when they spot specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
If you order a cloud web hosting plan from us and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just several clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 different levels of security. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom filters and either delete undesired messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address like where you can view them once again after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans come with second-to-none anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all inbound emails based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between 5 different security levels – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving junk emails, you can increase the level, or if genuine email messages are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted momentarily or if they should be forwarded to a chosen mailbox where you can review them later, so as to make certain that valuable messages will not disappear.
