An email filter is a software application that runs on a mail server and monitors all inbound email messages in order to stop any unasked-for ones from reaching a specific mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your computer. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email and in case they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up under a hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five levels of safety based on the spam score given to every email depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may miss an authentic message, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a given sender to a different email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer need a spam filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.
