An email filter is a software application that’s installed on an email server and monitors all incoming messages to hinder any unwanted ones from entering a particular inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking statements or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Email filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email message and if they spot given keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting
plan from our company and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 separate protection levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email message or permits it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to set up custom spam filters and either get rid of undesired emails or redirect them to a third-party email address like firstname.lastname@example.org where you can view them once more after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to use the email service that comes with our semi-dedicated servers
, you can keep all undesired email messages away from your mailbox by enabling the five-level anti-spam protection service that we offer with each semi-dedicated server package. This can be done through the feature-loaded Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we use the advanced SpamAssassin email filter to ensure that we provide the very best possible security for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered email messages should be erased or delivered to a different email account where you can view them at a later time so as to make certain that you will not miss authentic email messages. Switching to another protection level or disabling the spam protection is also easy and requires a couple of clicks of the mouse.
