A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages in order to impede any unwelcome ones from reaching a certain inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your PC. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email and when they spot specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our cloud plans, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any mailbox that you create. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five separate safety levels. In case you continue to receive unsolicited bulk emails or the email filters start preventing authentic emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam service is guaranteed by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping an authentic email that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to another email address where you can view them later.
