An email filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all inbound emails so as to stop any unwelcome ones from reaching a certain inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your PC. Spam filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our cloud website hosting, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email account that you set up. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up 5 different levels of safety. If you continue to get junk emails or the email filters start preventing authentic email messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is ensured by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting a legitimate message that may be regarded as spam because of its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to a different email account where you can review them at a later time.
