A spam filter is a software app that runs on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound emails in order to impede any unwanted ones from reaching a certain mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Email filters normally check the content of an email message and when they detect some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five separate protection levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either delete undesired emails or redirect them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once more after that.
