An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all inbound emails so as to impede any undesired ones from reaching a specific inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notices or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention of infecting your personal computer. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and if they spot given keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting plan from us and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few clicks, you can choose between 5 separate levels of protection. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each and every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to create custom filters and either delete unwelcome emails or re-send them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can double-check them afterwards.
