A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all inbound messages in order to block any unrequested ones from entering a certain mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email and in case they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every cloud hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can choose one of the five safety levels that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the content of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or forwarded to some other email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic message. Changing the level or disabling the spam protection is also incredibly easy.
