An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming messages to hinder any unwanted ones from reaching a given mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your computer. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email message and if they detect certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our cloud plans, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any email address that you create. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between five different levels of security. In case you still get spam emails or the filters start preventing legitimate email messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping a genuine message that may be mistaken for spam due to its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and forward the emails to another mailbox where you can view them later.
