An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on an email server and ‘scans’ all incoming email messages to obstruct any unsolicited ones from reaching a certain inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank statements or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to infect your computer. Spam filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email message and if they come across given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you choose any of our web hosting, you will be able to activate spam filters for any email address that you create. With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 different levels of security. In case you still get junk email messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate email messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering service is ensured by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping a legitimate email message that may be blocked as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to a different mailbox where you can read them later.
