A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all incoming messages in order to block any unwelcome ones from entering a certain mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your PC. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they spot certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The protection of any email account that you create under a cloud hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of security based on the spam score it gives to each message in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may skip an authentic email, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a given sender to some other email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with only several mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages come with excellent spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which classifies all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between 5 different levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you still receive spam, you can raise the level, or if genuine messages are reported as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted right away or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to make sure that valuable email messages won’t disappear.
