An email filter is a software application that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and keeps track of all incoming email messages to hinder any undesired ones from entering a certain mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Spam filters normally check the content of an email message and if they spot particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
The protection of any email account that you set up in a website hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five protection levels based on the spam score it gives to every message depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk emails, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may miss a genuine message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a certain sender to a different mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require a spam filter for a given email account, you can deactivate it with just a couple of mouse clicks.
