Find out about spam filters - what they are, the way they work and the way to create one.
An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming emails to impede any undesired ones from entering a specific mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email and when they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Hosting
The security of any mailbox that you create in a hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of safety based on the spam score given to each and every email in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to another mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with only several clicks.
