An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all inbound emails in order to impede any unwelcome ones from reaching a given mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters typically check the content of an email and when they detect specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
The protection of any mailbox that you create under a shared website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 safety levels based on the spam score it gives to every email in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip a legitimate email, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a specific sender to another mailbox. If you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a few clicks.
