A spam filter is a piece of software that runs on an email server and keeps track of all incoming messages in order to impede any unasked-for ones from reaching a particular mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention of infecting your PC. Email filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email and when they detect certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up in a website hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may omit an authentic message, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a particular sender to a different email address. In case you decide that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a given email account, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of clicks.
