A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound emails in order to hinder any unwanted ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to damage your computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email and in case they come across particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the 5 levels of security that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then continues based on the level that you’ve opted for. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the email messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be erased or re-sent to a different email address where you can check them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate message. Switching to some other level or disabling the protection is also surprisingly easy.
