A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on an email server and monitors all incoming emails so as to hinder any undesired ones from reaching a specific inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your PC. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they detect specific keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 different safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom filters and either get rid of undesirable emails or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once more at a later point in time.
