A spam filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and monitors all incoming email messages in order to impede any unrequested ones from reaching a particular mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email and in case they spot some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up under a cloud web hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 safety levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every message depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit a legitimate email message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a certain sender to a different email address. In case you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.
