An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a mail server and monitors all inbound email messages in order to stop any unasked-for ones from entering a given mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your PC. Spam filters normally check the content of an email message and when they detect particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting companies mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our cloud hosting, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five different safety levels. If you still receive junk messages or the filters start preventing authentic emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing an authentic message that may be classified as spam because of its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to some other mailbox where you can examine them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages offer first-rate anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which ranks all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 separate levels of security – from very high to very low. If you still get junk emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased immediately or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can review them later, so as to make certain that valuable messages will not get lost.
