A spam filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all inbound messages in order to impede any undesirable ones from reaching a given mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to infect your personal computer. Spam filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they detect particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks, you can choose between 5 different levels of security. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We use 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 that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom email filters and either get rid of unasked-for messages or re-send them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can examine them once again later.
