A spam filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and ‘scans’ all inbound emails in order to hinder any undesired ones from reaching a specific inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of damaging your personal computer. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they detect certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
The safety of any email account that you set up under a website hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of security based on the spam score given to every email message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip an authentic message, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a particular sender to a separate email account. In case you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a specific email account, you can deactivate it with only several clicks of the mouse.
