Read more about spam filters - what exactly they are, the way they work and the way to set up one.
A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound emails so as to impede any unsolicited ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to damage your computer. Email filters normally check the content of an email message and in case 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. Certain companies combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared web hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the five security levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the content of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have opted for. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or delivered to a separate email account where you can examine them later, so as to avoid erasing an authentic message. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also incredibly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to use the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated servers
, you can keep all unsolicited emails out of your inbox by activating the 5-level anti-spam protection that we provide with every semi-dedicated plan. This can be done through the feature-packed Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin email filter to make sure that we provide the best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased or delivered to some other email address where you can read them at a later time so as to make certain that you won’t skip genuine messages. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and takes a couple of clicks of the mouse.
