A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages to block any unsolicited ones from reaching a specific mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to infect your computer. Email filters normally examine the content of an email message and when they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up under a cloud hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of safety based on the spam score given to every email message depending on various parameters, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a legitimate email, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a particular sender to a separate email account. In case you decide that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a particular email account, you can deactivate it with just several clicks of the mouse.
