A spam filter is a software app that runs on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming emails to hinder any unrequested ones from reaching a particular inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Email filters usually examine the content of an email message and when they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our Linux cloud hosting, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email address that you create. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five separate levels of protection. In case you continue to get junk email messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam service is ensured by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping a genuine email that may be mistaken for spam due to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and re-send the emails to a different email address where you can view them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable emails out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any time. You can also adjust the level of security with a couple of mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk email messages still appear in your mailbox or the filter starts erasing legitimate messages. As you can select whether the spam should be erased immediately or forwarded to another email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you will not miss a message that you require. The email messages that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
