An email filter is a software app that’s installed on an email server and monitors all inbound emails to impede any unrequested ones from entering a certain inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your PC. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email message and in case they detect some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
Our web hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every cloud hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the five safety levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the body of every email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve opted for. Each email account can have a different level and you can select whether the email messages that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also astonishingly easy.
