An email filter is a software application that is installed on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming emails in order to hinder any unrequested ones from entering a certain inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking statements or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your PC. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email and when they come across given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk 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 safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you pick any of our cloud web hosting, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any email address that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between five separate levels of protection. In case you continue to get junk messages or the spam filters start preventing genuine messages from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting an authentic email that may be mistaken for spam due to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and forward the emails to a different email account where you can view them later.
