An email filter is a piece of software that runs on a mail server and monitors all incoming email messages to block any unasked-for ones from entering a given mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notices or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and if they detect particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The security of any email account that you create in a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to every email depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a legitimate message, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a specific sender to some other email address. If you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a given email account, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks.
