An email filter is a software application that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all inbound email messages to stop any unwelcome ones from entering a particular inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notices or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email message and when they spot specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The security of any mailbox that you set up in a cloud hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 security levels based on the spam score given to each message in accordance with different criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss an authentic message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a specific sender to a separate mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a given mailbox, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
