A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound emails so as to stop any undesired ones from reaching a given inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your computer. Email filters usually examine the content of an email message and if they detect some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 different protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of each email that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email message or allows it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to set up custom email filters and either erase unwelcome email messages or redirect them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can examine them once more later.
