A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound email messages to block any unwanted ones from reaching a particular inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to damage your computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email message and in case they come across given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can select between 5 separate levels of security. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each and every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either eliminate undesired messages or redirect them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them once again after that.
