An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all incoming emails so as to hinder any unasked-for ones from reaching a certain inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to damage your computer. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email and when they come across certain keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every shared hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the 5 safety levels that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the body of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have opted for. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose if the emails that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different email account where you can read them later, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email. Changing the level or disabling the spam protection is also unbelievably easy.
