An email filter is a software application that’s installed on an email server and monitors all incoming messages so as to obstruct any unasked-for ones from entering a certain mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email message and in case they detect specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each cloud web hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the content of each message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you’ve chosen. Each email account can have a different level and you can select if the email messages that the filter classifies as spam should be deleted or redirected to another email account where you can read them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the protection is also really easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans offer top-of-the-line spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five different levels of safety – from very low to very high. If you keep getting spam messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are reported as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased immediately or if they should be redirected to a chosen mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to make certain that valuable email messages will not disappear.
