An email filter is a software application that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound emails so as to stop any unrequested ones from entering a specific inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking statements or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters typically check the content of an email message and in case they spot particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
If you order a shared web hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can select between 5 separate security levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to create custom email filters and either erase unsolicited messages or send them to a third-party address like where you can view them once again at a later time.
