An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a mail server and monitors all inbound email messages in order to stop any unasked-for ones from reaching a particular inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Email filters usually examine the content of an email and if they come across given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
If you order a cloud web hosting plan from us and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate levels of safety. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of every message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom filters and either eliminate unasked-for emails or re-send them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them once again afterwards.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you won’t need to worry about junk emails occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and you can choose any of the 5 security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can check them every now and then to ensure that you have not omitted a legitimate email.
