A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on an email server and monitors all incoming email messages so as to impede any undesired ones from reaching a given mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email and when they detect some keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting
plan from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you will 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 no more than a few clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five separate protection levels. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous email filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of each email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom filters and either eliminate unsolicited emails or redirect them to a 3rd-party address such as firstname.lastname@example.org where you can check them once again later.
