A spam filter is a software app that runs on an email server and monitors all incoming emails in order to impede any unsolicited ones from reaching a particular mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of infecting your PC. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and if they detect certain keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The protection of any email account that you create in a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of security based on the spam score it gives to each message in accordance with different criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may omit an authentic email, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a particular sender to a separate email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer require a spam filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with just several mouse clicks.
