An email filter is a software app that is installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all inbound messages to stop any unrequested ones from reaching a certain inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Spam filters usually check the content of an email message and in case they detect some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
The protection of any email account that you set up under a shared hosting
account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip an authentic email, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a given sender to a separate email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer want a spam filter for a particular email account, you can disable it with no more than several mouse clicks.
