An email filter is a software application that runs on an email server and monitors all incoming email messages so as to obstruct any undesired ones from entering a certain inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notices or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your computer. Spam filters usually check the content of an email message and if they detect specific keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our shared hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different levels of safety. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection solution is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting an authentic email that may be regarded as spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and forward the emails to another email address where you can review them later.
