A spam filter is a software application that is installed on an email server and monitors all incoming emails to impede any unasked-for ones from reaching a given mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your computer. Email filters usually check the content of an email message and in case they detect some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with us and you select any of our web hosting, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any mailbox 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. If you still get unsolicited bulk email messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate messages from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk missing a legitimate message that may be considered spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to some other mailbox where you can read them later.
