An email filter is a piece of software that runs on an email server and keeps track of all inbound messages to block any unrequested ones from entering a specific inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to infect your personal computer. Spam filters typically check the content of an email and when they detect particular keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you select any of our Linux cloud web hosting, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any email address that you create. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five separate levels of safety. In case you continue to receive spam email messages or the email filters start preventing authentic messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing an authentic email that may be flagged as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and redirect the emails to a different email address where you can view them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all unwanted email messages away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any moment. You can also change the protection level with a few clicks if unsolicited bulk messages continue to appear in your mailbox or the spam filter starts deleting authentic messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted momentarily or re-sent to a separate email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss an email that you need. The email messages that the filter allows to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
