An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all incoming emails so as to block any undesirable ones from entering a given mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to infect your computer. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email and in case they spot certain keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The security of any email account that you create in a cloud hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of protection based on the spam score given to each message depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of specific words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit an authentic email, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to some other mailbox. If you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with no more than several clicks of the mouse.
