A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and monitors all inbound emails to block any unrequested ones from reaching a certain inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they spot some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our cloud hosting, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five different protection levels. In case you continue to get unsolicited bulk emails or the filters start preventing legitimate messages 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 famous email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a legitimate email that may be mistaken for spam because of its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and re-send the emails to a different email address where you can view them later.
