An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all inbound emails to impede any unwelcome ones from reaching a particular mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to damage your PC. Email filters typically examine the content of an email message and when they detect given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you create in a cloud website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each and every message in accordance with different criteria, such as the recurrence of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may miss a legitimate message, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a particular sender to a separate mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a given mailbox, you can disable it with no more than a couple of clicks.
