An email filter is a software application that runs on a mail server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages to hinder any undesirable ones from entering a given inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email message and when they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a cloud website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 security levels based on the spam score given to each email depending on various criteria, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit a legitimate email message, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a certain sender to another mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can disable it with no more than several clicks.
