An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all incoming email messages to stop any undesired ones from entering a specific mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Spam filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and if they detect given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from us and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks, you can choose between five separate protection levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email message or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to set up custom filters and either eliminate unasked-for email messages or send them to a third-party address like where you can examine them once more at a later point in time.
