An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all incoming messages to stop any undesired ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your computer. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email and if they detect certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting companies combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting package from us and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you can pick between five separate levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each and every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to create custom filters and either delete undesired messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party address like where you can examine them again at a later point in time.
