An email filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all inbound email messages to block any unasked-for ones from reaching a given inbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking statements or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters typically check the content of an email and when they detect particular keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you create in a shared hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each message in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may miss an authentic email message, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a certain sender to a separate mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer want a spam filter for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a few mouse clicks.
