A spam filter is a software application that is installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming emails so as to impede any unasked-for ones from reaching a given mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to damage your PC. Email filters typically check the content of an email and when they spot specific keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

The protection of any email account that you create under a hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five safety levels based on the spam score it gives to every message depending on various criteria, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may miss a genuine message, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a specific sender to a separate email address. If you decide that you no longer need an email filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a couple of clicks.
