An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all incoming emails to obstruct any undesirable ones from reaching a certain mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking statements or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Spam filters typically check the content of an email message and in case they detect particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the five safety levels that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the body of each email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve selected. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose if the emails that the spam filter labels as spam should be erased or delivered to some other mailbox where you can review them later, so as to avoid erasing a genuine email. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also quite easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to use the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans, you can keep all undesirable messages out of your mailbox by activating the five-level spam protection service that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated server package. This can be achieved via the feature-packed Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we offer the very best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered messages should be erased or re-sent to a different mailbox where you can read them at a later time to make sure that you will not lose authentic email messages. Changing the level of protection or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and takes a couple of clicks of the mouse.
