A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound email messages to obstruct any unwelcome ones from reaching a specific inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email and if they detect particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
The security of any mailbox that you create in a shared web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it through 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 parameters, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may skip an authentic message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a specific sender to a different email account. In case you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with only a few clicks of the mouse.
