An email filter is a software app that runs on an email server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages to obstruct any unrequested ones from reaching a specific mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking statements or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your PC. Email filters normally check the content of an email and if they detect given keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you create in a cloud hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 security levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every message depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may miss an authentic email, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to another email account. In case you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a certain email account, you can disable it with only a few mouse clicks.
