A spam filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all incoming email messages to stop any unasked-for ones from entering a certain mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to damage your personal computer. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email and if they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you select any of our website hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any email account that you create. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five different levels of security. If you continue to receive spam email messages or the filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing an authentic email that may be flagged as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to another mailbox where you can read them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer top-level spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between five separate safety levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to get spam, you can raise the level, or if genuine emails are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased right away or if they should be delivered to a chosen email account where you can review them later, so as to make certain that the email messages that you need won’t disappear.
